The President is not in agreement with the decision of the Parliament to pass a vote of no-confidence in the Prime Minister
President Aleksandr Ankvab, in an interview with the "Interfax" agency, commented on the decision of the Parliament to pass a vote of no-confidence in the Prime Minister and to propose that the President offer his resignation.
"As far as the vote of no-confidence in the Prime Minister is concerned, any decision on the said question, according to the law, falls within the competence of the President. I am not dismissing the Prime Minister. Regarding the proposal for me voluntarily to resign, I shall not respond to it until I consult with the other, significant part of the deputies who did not participate in the session of Parliament, and with voters, and with social and political organisations, which during these days have been supporting the legitimate government and are urging the opposition to return to the path of constitutionality.”
As reported by the Information Directorate for the President of the Republic of Abkhazia.
