The Georgian parliament voted on Tuesday to override the president's veto on the controversial foreign agents bill. Mass protests have been taking place since April against the project pushed by the Georgian government.

President Salome Zourabishvili, sending the vetoed bill back to parliament, emphasized that “it is unconstitutional and its improvement is not possible.” The head of state's veto was rejected on Monday by the parliament's legal committee. Discussions on the veto were accompanied by sharp exchanges of opinions between the opposition and the ruling Georgian Dream. On Tuesday, a vote on this matter took place in parliament, which rejected the presidential veto.
