According to the chairman of the political group “European Socialists” of the Parliament, Fridon Injia, it would be good to prepare special places for outside traders in municipalities across the country, where they can sell their products.
In this regard, the deputy considers it expedient to create a special law that will regulate the issue of external vendors at the legislative level, along with the changes in the Code of Administrative Offenses.
of Georgia The legislative initiative was discussed in the first reading in the legal affairs committee of the Parliament, on the basis of which the scope of action of administrative offenses was expanded and clarified, which also implies the tightening of the law against external traders and the imposition of fines on them.
“Would it be possible to adopt a law in parallel with this draft law, which obliges the municipality, before moving on to fines and punishment mechanisms, as it is written in the project, to prepare places in the city center, in the suburbs, where outside vendors can sell their products”, said Fridon Injia.
According to the MP, the articles in the draft law, which imply different methods of fines and punishments, are unacceptable to him.
“For me, these issues are unacceptable, and I don’t think that this form of fine is acceptable for an outside trader who sells products brought from home or something else. Therefore, wouldn’t it be right, together with this law, to have an obligation at the level of the law that all municipalities create a special place and create appropriate conditions for outside traders. Of course, there should be order, including in relation to external vendors, but it should be balanced and the state, together with municipalities, should do everything for it, and I think it should be an acceptable proposal for everyone.” – noted Fridon Injia.
