"We'll deprive the officials of dachas, all kinds of constructions, all privileges, and use them. These amounts will be spent on you", he promised.
Ivanishvili has assured those gathered outside his residence that the help to those in need was a government priority, as well as that a larger budget means would be allocated for these purposes.
Previously several dozens of disadvantaged citizens gathered outside the business center Ivanishvili in Tbilisi, demanding a meeting with him. They waited there all night from 11 to 12 December.
Recall, after the October election, won by Ivanishvili's coalition "Georgian Dream", in Tbilisi refugees occupied several empty and semi-empty buildings. Thus, in late October, about hundred refugees broken into the former building of the Department of Corrections in Tbilisi and occupied it. Later, refugees from Abkhazia and South Ossetia captured the buildings for housing since they are unable to pay the rent. 12 families of refugees from Abkhazia have broken into the building Research Center of Subtropical Crops and Tea Industry and occupied the rooms.
