Chakhvadze’s initiative

The National Democratic Party regards the distribution of food vouchers to the population as a positive step from the side of the Government. However, the party considers that this should not be a single action and it should be distributed purposefully.

Guram Chakhvadze presented the initiative of the party at the briefing and stated that according to the National Democratic Party, the food vouchers should be distributed to the most vulnerable part of society and its amount should be correspondent to the living minimum – 243 GEL, 24 Hours reports.

"The National Democratic Party puts forward the initiative and suggests the Parliament and the whole government transfer a percentage of their salaries to the special fund, for the purpose of the state aid and charity, and if His Beatitude agrees, that could be the Patriarch’s Fund, through which the churches of its Eparchy will provide assistance to the socially vulnerable persons”,- Guram Chakhvadze stated at the end of the briefing.
