New Rights call on government to increase compensations for disaster affected regions
New Rights party calls on the government to allocate compensations and provide assistance to all regions of Georgia that were affected by the disaster last week. Levan Kalandadze, the director of the party`s economic direction, announced at the briefing today that the compensations should be issued not only for the residents of the Kakheti Region, but for the Samtskhe-Javakheti and Mtskheta-Mtianeti Regions as well. As for the affected families in Kakheti Region, the opposition party says the damage should be counted and compensations should be issued to each family individually. New Rights assert the funds allocated from the state budget for the disaster regions are not sufficient. `Damage inflicted to each family should be counted individually and the compensations should also issued according to this damage. Another significant issue is that the government should assist the families and citizens affected by the disaster not only in Kakheti, but in Samtskhe-Javakheti and Mtskheta-Mtianeti Regions too,` Kalandadze said.
