 Bidzina Ivanishvili Calls on Mikheil Saakashvili to Use Presidential Chancellery Residence

Bidzina Ivanishvili calls on Mikheil Saakashvili to use the presidential residence of the chancellery. As Ivanishvili told journalists after the governmental sitting, a lot of funding is spent on serving the president, which is unacceptable.
“We’ll significantly reduce funding for the Presidential administration, as there are high expenses in serving him, 800,000 GEL just for paying electricity of the Presidential Palace. Saakashvili, who prolongs his term, uses this amount of money from the budget. With so many

indigent people living in the country, spending so much on serving the President is unimaginable. 800,000 GEL is transferred monthly only from the Ministry of Defense budget on Saakashvili’s second plane, we are not yet clear about the first plane’s expenses”, Ivanishvili stated.
Prime Minister calls on the President to use the presidential residence of the chancellery, which is closed and its area equals that of the Prime Minister.
Ivanishvili explained that as the leader of the country in the future, he doesn’t intend to use the Presidential Residence in Avlabari, as service of such a fashionable building is not in the best interest of the country.
“When there are so many refugees in the country, it’s immoral to live in that castle. Tens of millions of economic stimulus is possible and the government will use these funds better. A lot of questions are raised regarding funding Bokeria’s department. 30 m. is allotted for this department, while Zakareishvili’s department, staffed with the same number personnel, uses only a million and a half. 21 m. is clandestine expenses in Bokeria’s department, which I presume is money spent on lobbyists”, Ivanishvili said.
He informs that by reducing the transfer of funds from the city budget by 100 m. and the optimization of expenses, expenses of refugees will be doubled, agriculture, education and healthcare will be financed.
He explained that apart from the address to the President, he will use all the legal levers to limit funding of the Presidential Palace.
