The non-governmental sector needs to be restarted. The crisis, which is in the form of hypocrisy in this sector, should be overcome, restarted, the Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, Shalva Papuashvili, said while talking to journalists about the non-governmental sector.
According to him, several dominant "non-governmental organizations have the ability to wash out other organizations, to exclude them and to prevent them from receiving any funds".
"The recent period has shown that the non-governmental sector needs to be restarted. The crisis that exists in this sector, in the form of hypocrisy, this crisis should be overcome, restarted. Several so-called influential organizations dominate this field, which suppresses other organizations, 99% of them are engaged in social-educational issues that are important both in the center and in the regions.
There are several dominant organizations that small organizations are afraid of, because they know that these organizations have the ability to wash out other organizations, exclude them, and prevent them from receiving funds. Because of this there is some fear in other organizations. They must discuss and revise the situation within the civil sector.
As for the influences, as the Public Defender stated, there was pressure on three MPs. I think it is his duty to take an interest in this matter, to ask those three MPs who put pressure on them.
There is a doubt that these were non-governmental organizations that put pressure on the Members of Parliament. It is the duty of these three MPs to name who put pressure on them. I think it will be good if the ombudsman names who interferes in democratic processes, who are those organizations or people", Papuashvili noted.
