Today Georgia celebrates the 100th anniversary of Constituent Assembly of the Democratic Republic of Georgia (Parliament).
The Constituent Assembly of Georgia was a national legislature of the Democratic Republic of Georgia which was elected in February 1919 to ratify the Act of Independence of Georgia and enact the Constitution of 1921.
The assembly remained active until the Soviet Russian military intervention brought Georgia’s three-year independence to an end in March 1921.
The 1921 constitution is considered a cornerstone of Georgia’s independent statehood that serves as the basis for the modern-day constitution.
Adopted in 1995, the current constitution was modelled after the 1921 document.
After the waves of public and parliamentary discussions last year, Georgia adopted the new edition of the Constitution to better reflect the country’s current challenges.
