Social Campaign "Leave Parliament in Kutaisi" kicks off

Social campaign - "Leave Parliament in Kutaisi" - was launched by the civil sector of Kutaisi.

The civil sector considers that the transition of all legislator activities from Kutaisi to capital Tbilisi will harm the city and the development perspectives.

"The functioning of the parliament in Kutaisi is not only the survival of Kutaisi but also of the capital of the country. Equal development of the regions should be a priority for the government, "said Khvicha Vashakmadze, head of Kutaisi Information Center.

The Georgian parliament has approved the transition of all legislator activities from Kutaisi to capital Tbilisi.

The Georgian Parliament Building in Kutaisi has been the home of the Parliament of Georgia since its inauguration on May 26, 2012, replacing the Parliament building on Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi. (By Mariam Chanishvili)
