"Our priority is approval of the European model of legal proceedings. I consider making amendments to the Constitution as priority, which in compliance with the European and international standards allow guaranteeing independence of the court. The Venice Commission carried out an expert appraisal of the proposed amendments. Following a thorough development of the proposed amendments, I submit this law for consideration of the parliament today," he has said.
