Tbilisi. A special sitting of the Georgian parliament will be held in Georgian President's initiative. The parliament will consider amendments to the State Budget of Georgia, envisaging payment of compensations to disaster-affected people in Kheti region. President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili stated about it at the sitting of the emergency headquarters on Thursday, July 19.
"The harvest, which was the only income for the population, was liquidated. That's why, despite that fact we need money for other projects implementation, I ask the parliament to convene a sitting to consider amendments to the budget to assist our people, including by allocation of compensation", Saakashvili said.
On the Georgian President's initiative, the next sitting of the headquarters for liquidation consequences of the disaster in Kakheti will be held later at night and the ministers will report on performed work at the sitting.
