Labour Party disapproves anti-discrimination draft law
Georgian Labour Party leader Shalva Natelashvili disapproves the draft law on anti-discrimination, which is under discussion at the parliament now. The opposition leader believes the law was initiated by the former prime minister Bidzina Ivanishvili, asserting he instructed the ruling party leaders to initiate it at Saturday`s meeting of the GD political council, where he was also present. Shalva Natelashvili calls on the lawmakers not to adopt this law. `The billionaire dictator did not fulfill the dreams of people but he did fulfill the dreams of gays. Bidzina Ivanishvili is the author of the so-called anti-discrimination draft law, which is a law for turning sexual minorities into a privileged caste and he met with his dream mates last Saturday for this. I call on the majority, if they still have dignity and moral, block this draft law and defect from this shameful majority,` Natelashvili said.
