Jondi Baghaturia, leader of “Kartuli Dasi” Party, along with clergymen and citizens, held a solidarity rally in front of the building of the Georgian First Channel this afternoon. Participants of the rally expressed support to the decision taken by the channel to ban the advertising of gambling and slot games in its broadcast programming airtime.
Baghaturia called on other media outlets to support this decision.
According to Baghaturia, he plans to submit the legislative initiative to the parliament on banning gambling games in the nearest future.
Clergymen also hail the initiative of the Georgian First Channel.
The Georgian First Channel rejects advertising of gambling and slot games in its broadcast programming airtime. Georgian First Channel will fulfil its current obligations but will not be advertising gambling games starting January 1, 2020.
