Ugulava promises to fight the imperfect laws, bureaucracy and corruption2010-04-26 21:00
"We have done a lot and we have got a lot more to do", - Gigi Ugulava, the candidate for the post of Mayor of the capital named by the ruling party has stated today at the meeting with the people of the Gldanskiy residential area of Tbilisi.gt-en-newsitem-inside
During the meeting held in the second residential district of Gldani, Ugualva was officially presented to the electors as a candidate.
He underlined that one of his main tasks in case he wins the lections will be providing assistance to minor businessmen, GeorgiaTimes correspondent in Tbilisi reports.
"The main point is not to create obstacles for minor businessmen. I know a woman who maintains a family by baking crusts for cakes and selling them to the shops. However, this woman had to face certain problems as soon as the law prohibited receiving any products without invoices. The shops started demanding invoices from her - and she baked her crusts alone in her apartment. We must do everything we can so that such undertakers would have no problems", - Ugulava stated.
He says that the reason of the problems is the inflexible and deficient legislation, bureaucracy and corruption, which he has promised to fight as soon as he is re-elected.
Besides the fact that the local authorities will make no obstacles to the working people, Ugualva promised to continue the construction of the new roads and bridges in Tbilisi, the revival of the old city and creation a stable and safe environment in the capital.
It should also be noted that the amendments to the Tax Code prohibiting the shops to receive any products without invoices were initiated several months ago, which caused protest both on the part of the shop owners and small employers.
As to the fight with bureaucracy and corruption, it has always been the subject of pride of the ruling party members who stated many times that this fight goes on successfully and that Georgia has long since outrun many post-Soviet countries and even the more developed ones in this aspect.
