Paragraph 51

Direct election of the President by popular vote is thus abolished and replaced by a system of indirect election through an electoral college. As the draft amendments shall enter into force upon the oath of the President of Georgia elected after the next presidential elections (Article 2 section 2 of the transitional provisions), the new electoral system will come into effect in 2023, that is, after the next presidential elections scheduled in 2018. This delay is to be welcomed.
