I call on the majority to jointly develop a deoligarchization bill - in case the majority presents the bill, we will also present our version, I hope we will come to an agreement, National Movement deputy Levan Bezhashvili told reporters.
According to him, copying the Ukrainian version is not correct, and the Georgian version of the law on deoligarchization should be written, which will correspond to the Georgian reality, otherwise, as Bezhashvili says, the proposed change will be legislative hypocrisy.
"Ukraine's model concerns a completely different political situation. They have an elected democratic government there, and neither the President nor the Parliament are under oligarchic influence, naturally, their version of the law on deoligarchization was approved by European structures, but the reality of Georgia is absolutely different and the situation in Georgia needs legislative regulation. We have an oligarch, a party under oligarchic influence, which is in power and whose founder is an oligarch. There are all signs of oligarchic rule, the state is being captured, and this is reflected in many conclusions of international organizations. Therefore, we should write a Georgian version of the law on deoligarchization, which will correspond to the modern Georgian reality, otherwise the proposed change will be legislative hypocrisy.
That's why I call on the majority to jointly develop this draft law, we should not focus on individuals and reflect the existing situation, we should create a preventive draft law. The parliamentary opposition worked on its version of the anti-oligarchy law, naturally, there are differences of opinion, consultations were held with non-governmental organizations, experts, in case the majority presents the draft law, we will present our version to the Parliament and I hope that these two versions will be reconciled," said Bezhashvili.
