Fridon Injia – When carrying out the construction of the port of Anaklia, the clear task and the main postulate should be to get the maximum and stable profit for the state over the years, and there should not be any politics here

📍 “When carrying out the construction of the port of Anaklia, the clear task and the main postulate should be to get the maximum and stable profit for the state over the years, and there should not be any politics here.”

🔷 Chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia stated this at the plenary session of the Parliament, where the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Levan Davitashvili was heard on the issue of the construction of the port of Anaklia.

🔷 The chairman of the political group positively evaluated the decision made by the country’s government a few months ago, according to which the state became the owner of the control package of a number of strategically important objects, and Anaklia port is among them.

🔷 “I believe that it is necessary to invite the minister on such issues and this is a step forward on the way of democratic development of our country. Ultimately, as a result of this process, you will make adjustments to the project and the legislature will be aware of it.

🔷 I cannot tell you what happened and why the construction of Anaklia port was delayed in previous years, but I consider the decision of the Georgian government to become the owner of the control package of strategically important objects a great achievement.

🔷 This is the participation of the state in strategic infrastructure, and as it happened, the state decided to have a control package in such strategic infrastructure as Hudon Hess or others, including the port of Anaklia. This is a great achievement.

🔷Our party “European Socialists” has been talking about this in practically every speech for almost three years. It would be welcome if the state always had such an approach to objects of strategic importance. Then, the country will take a completely different look and develop differently.

🔷 I think that during the implementation of the project, the clear task and the main postulate should be the maximum and stable profit for years, and there should not be any politics here. – said the MP.

🔷 As for the fact that the state has lost profit due to the delay in the construction of the project for years, according to the deputy, with the policy that the country’s government is doing now, which involves the transfer of 51% of the control package to the state, this loss will be compensated by this.

🔷 The deputy believes that the minimization of operational costs should be taken into account during the implementation of the project.

🔷 “If, for example, a Chinese company won the tender, I don’t see a problem here. It is very important that the Georgian government signed an agreement with China as a strategic partner, because for years, Chinese investment in Georgia was blocked. It was not allowed. I don’t know how you got this permission, but it is the most important thing. Practically, the implementation of Chinese and Iranian investments in Georgia was prohibited.

🔷 If we act in the interests of the country and want the living conditions of our population to improve and the standard of living to rise, then the government should do everything to implement these investments. In such a case, the population of the country will not go to a foreign country, and on the contrary, the emigrants will return to their homeland.

🔷 Therefore, you should be guided by the first postulate, which I focused on in the chapter – getting the maximum and stable profit from this project”. – noted the MP.

🔷 The chairman of the political group believes that in the implementation of the project, an important role is played by increasing the cargo turnover. All the more so if we take into account that there is not much cargo turnover in the ports operating in the country today.

🔷 “During the construction of the port of Anaklia, we must take into account the increase in cargo turnover and its cargo provision. Therefore, it would be desirable for the party participating in 49% of the control package to be involved in the haulage. And if that 49% is managed by a Swiss company, or if you want an Austrian company, it will not be able to load the port. And if, for example, it will be the Chinese side, whether you want the Kazakh side, or a representative of an Asian country, then this will somehow allow us to talk to them about increasing the cargo turnover, otherwise, it will be a futile activity,” said the MP.

🔷 Fridon Injia, in his speech regarding the construction of the port of Anaklia, focused on the smooth operation of the transport infrastructure and noted that this is one of the most important factors for the implementation of this project.

🔷 “Another important issue, in order to attract cargo, proper operation of the transport infrastructure is needed, and first of all, it is the railway. It is important that the railway or transport infrastructure is in order. Because on the one hand, we build a port and there is ready cargo from there, but it cannot go to the destination because of bad infrastructure, this is not allowed and therefore it is important in this factor itselfsaid the chairman of the political group.

📍 Fridon Injia addressed several initiatives to the Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth

🔷 Chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia addressed the Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth of Georgia Tea Tsulukiani with several initiatives and questions in the format of “Minister’s Hour” held in the Parliament.

🔷 As the deputy noted, despite the fact that Georgia is a small country, being the Minister of Sports and Culture of this small country is a great responsibility and, at the same time, a great pride, because Georgians are creative people.

🔷 “You are doing it decently. You don’t lack strictness, but I would like you to be stricter because people like strictness more,” said Fridon Injia.

🔷 According to him, the country has many successful and prominent athletes, and it will be a great incentive for them if they are presented with honorary orders or medals by the minister, which will be another manifestation of appreciation of the merits and work of these famous athletes.
In addition, the deputy believes that there should be a sports channel in the Georgian television space, which will broadcast 24 hours a day, and it would be good if this channel was created under the auspices of the Ministry.

🔷 Fridon Injia also spoke about the Georgian cultural heritage and noted that the Abedati fortress, which is located in the Martvil municipality and dates back to the IV-V centuries, needs rehabilitation.

🔷 “Due to the fact that it is possible to mobilize more funds in the budget than was planned, will it be possible, as an exception, to rehabilitate this monument”, said Fridon Injia.

🔷 As the Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth Thea Tsulukiani noted in response, a special group of the National Agency for the Protection of Cultural Heritage will study the rehabilitation needs of the Abedati fortress on the spot, and after that it will be determined what the ministry will be able to do in the future.

📍 Chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia responded to the agitation regarding the impeachment of the former Prosecutor General of Georgia Otar Fartskhaladze at the plenary session of the Parliament a few days ago.
📍 “Georgian citizens are protected by the Constitution of Georgia. No one has the right to limit the rights of a citizen without a court decision. Now let me know who should protect Fartskhaladze today and someone else tomorrow from the anti-constitutional actions of the National Bank”. – said Fridon Injia.
🔷 At the plenary session, the deputy drew attention to the denunciation of Otar Fartskhaladze, a friendly state of Georgia by the United States of America, without any argumentation.
🔷 “Partskhaladze sold the territory of Georgia?” Did he alienate the state property of Georgia cheaply or give it away?! Or committed an act that hurt our country? If he approved the decision of the President of Russia, he personally or through him the Georgian authorities had no leverage over whether to accept it.
🔷 Can someone tell me what the Georgian government should have done in this case? What legs did he fill? Did you get hysterical? As it was done by the double agent of the country, woe to the president Salome Zurabishvili, on the unilateral decision of the Russian president, what decision gave Georgia additional millions?
🔷 It turns out, friend of Georgia – the USA sanctions a person, in this case Fartskhaladze, without any argumentation and who really sold the territories, with his anti-national anti-state actions, cut off the indigenous parts of Georgia (hopefully temporarily) from the motherland, made hundreds of thousands of Georgian citizens miserable and lost what they had. , one armful of summer clothes Amara left them and turned them into refugees. In addition, he gave a gift to the heads of his family and did not impose sanctions on their followers, on the contrary, they protect them with self-sacrifice.
🔷 They created an agency network, which is embedded in practically all state institutions, and if they could not embed agents there, they created non-governmental organizations, which they finance themselves. And a person who is happy to receive billions in the budget of Georgia from a country where up to a million Georgians live, will be sanctioned.
🔷 Kalashnikov was brought as a witness. It turns out that Fartskhaladze was a KGB agent. What did Kalashnikov say – we invited him, we talked and practically, that was the end of it. Can you imagine? If Fartskhaladze is really a “KGB” agent, Kalashnikov is such a mime that he doesn’t know what to say and so easily exposed the “KGB” agent to the public?!
🔷 Now regarding the citizenship of Fartskhaladze, if a person was born in the Soviet Union and has a birth certificate from the time of the Soviet Union, he can apply for citizenship in the Russian Federation. There is a relevant law on this.
🔷 In Israel, Greece, Germany, Spain and many other countries, if a person proves a genetic, kinship relationship with the main nation living in that country either on the father’s or mother’s side, or has a corresponding surname and considers himself to be a representative of this or that nation, they are given without knowing any language citizenship.
With us, on the one hand, we consider Abkhazia and Samachablo to be an indigenous part of our country, and on the other hand, we conduct tests in Georgian language and literature for our compatriots displaced from there, and we do not grant Georgian citizenship to 8 out of 10.
🔷 Every country tries to increase the population, because if there is no population, there is no country. We are pursuing an anti-national policy.
who does this Agents implanted and funded by the US since Saakashvili’s time.
🔷 Georgian citizens are protected by the Constitution of Georgia. No one has the right to limit the rights of a citizen without a court decision. Now let me know who should protect Fartskhaladze today and someone else tomorrow from the anti-constitutional actions of the National Bank”. – said Fridon Injia.
🔷 The chairman of the political group believes that the prosecutor’s office should raise this issue before the Constitutional Court, but according to Fridon Injia, the prosecutor’s office does not investigate similar cases and has put it on the shelf for years.
“Who should bring this issue to the Constitutional Court?” I think the prosecutor’s office, which is watching all this from afar. If the prosecutor’s office had investigated the cases on the shelves in a timely manner, and the process had proceeded in court, Georgia would have avoided many troubles.
🔷 If you noticed, this agency, that is, the fifth column, does not say a single word about the prosecutor’s office, about investigating the cases that are exposed to them… and this is understandable, for themselves, whether they will issue a verdict about the commission of a crime.
🔷 They attack only the court, they have the prosecutor’s office and some other state institutions under their complete control and do not touch them,” Fridon Injia said.

Fridon Injia believes that the draft law submitted by the Government of Georgia as a legislative initiative on making amendments to the Organic Law of Georgia on Georgian citizenship does not take into account changes in relation to the principle issues, which is called the introduction of a simplified rule for granting Georgian citizenship.

📍 Chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia believes that the draft law “On Georgian Citizenship” presented by the Georgian government as a legislative initiative does not take into account the changes in relation to the principle issues, which is called the introduction of a simplified rule for granting Georgian citizenship.

🔴 “On Georgian Citizenship” was discussed at the meeting of the Legal Affairs Committee today.

🔷 “I believe that the presented changes concern procedural issues and do not provide for a change in relation to the principle issue, which is called the introduction of a simplified rule for granting Georgian citizenship. The fact that the draft law was approved by international organizations is a template approach to the issue, and I draw attention to it because Georgia is different from other countries.
For example, such as Israel, Greece and Germany.

🔷 What do I mean? In these countries, citizenship is granted to a person who has a document confirming the nationality, origin of any of the above countries. It will be from the mother’s or father’s side or according to other relatives, and it does not matter whether the person knows the Georgian language or not. It is the national spirit and the law expressing national interests that operates in these countries. And we, according to our legislation, are very far from such principles,” said Fridon Injia at the committee meeting.

🔷 According to the chairman of the political group, it is very important to pay careful attention to those people who had to leave their homeland due to the twists of fate.

🔷 “Our compatriots, who had to leave Abkhazia and Samachablo due to a twist of fate, today wish to receive Georgian citizenship and return to their homeland. According to the constitution, Abkhazia and Samachab are territories of Georgia. The government refuses to grant citizenship to our compatriots. Who is responsible for this? Is it not anti-national? It turns out that we are talking about one thing, and on the other hand, we are practically getting rid of those people who were citizens of Georgia and now we are no longer giving them citizenship. If we had protected and preserved these territories, would they still be citizens of our country?! …” – noted Fridon Injia.

🔷 The MP negatively evaluated the work of the State Commission for Granting Citizenship and introduced the example of our compatriot Leri Iashvili to the members of the committee, to whom the said commission refused to grant Georgian citizenship for an incomprehensible reason.

🔷 “Leri Iashvili was born and raised in Kutaisi, who graduated from school with a gold medal. He is 70 years old and he wants to come to live in Georgia. Leri Iashvili writes poems and at the same time is a member of the Writers’ Union of Georgia, who, according to the decision of the State Commission, failed to pass the exam in Georgian language and literature, and for this reason, he was denied the citizenship of Georgia. Let me know what is the purpose of the activity of this commission?!”. – noted Fridon Injia.
