At the event, the EU Delegation’s Head, Ambassador David Geer said adoption of the constitutional changes without further delay would lead to the 2nd Inter-governmental Conference being held. To that end, he added, open debates are needed in Parliament without prejudices of the past and fears about the future. However, Geer had fierce remarks about the judicial reforms.
