Most of the recommendations are unacceptable for the ruling party. Ivanishvili"s team refuses to let the parliament of the next convocation to appoint a part of judges. Georgian Dream refuses to make a process of selection of judges in the High Council of Justice transparent and the results of the polls open.

It is noteworthy that the ruling party has agreed to the Venice Commission"s requirement and abolished the qualification examination for non-judge members of the Supreme Court. Second, the conflict of interests - a member of the High Council of Justice, who wants to become a judge of the Supreme Court, will not be able to make any decision.
