Discussions in parliament over government’s plan turn out harsh


Discussions in the parliament over the government’s plan in stabilization of the national currency Lari proceeded under harsh debates today. Lawmakers inquired about new regulations to be activated starting 2017 from Deputy Finance Minister. 

The package of legislative changes based on which realization of immovable property and advertising should only be in GEL was objected to by the opposition. The ruling team explains proposed limitations with arguments of consumers’ rights and increase of trust toward national currency. 

The parliamentary minority disagrees with the arguments. Opponents claim that in case of depreciation of GEL, the changes will pose a serious threat to the business sector.
