USAID/PROLoG Supports Workshop with MPs on Selection of Supreme Court Judges

On August 10-11, USAID/PROLoG organized a workshop for members of the European Georgia faction in Borjomi. The goal was to assist the MPs to properly prepare for the final stage of selection of Supreme Court Judges in Georgia, by sharing aspects of the selection of US Supreme Court and Federal Judges that may be applicable to the Georgian context.

Similar workshops have already been organized last month for a group of Georgian Dream — the ruling party—MPs, as well as for Independent Members of the Parliament.
