Two  months have passed since  a new draft law on gambling advertising ban was submitted to Parliament - this is the second attempt of the independent MP Levan Gogichaishvili to ban gambling advertising in the country – the first failed several months ago and the second draft has not yet been discussed in  Parliament.

“Everyone seems to be concerned about the problem, but when it comes to voting, the MPs  either abstain on the bill or vote against to please their party boss,”  the deputy notes. 

In Levan Gogichaishvili’s words,   the ruling majority openly sabotages the adoption of regulations  to tighten control over the gambling business because  the gambling industry has very influential lobbyists who are not interested in this.  The gambling business finances the “black box office” of the ruling party.

 “No one can affect the interests of online casinos with a daily turnover of several million laris. The speaker of Parliament twice spoke at a meeting of the bureau of parliament and promised to consider the bill in the near future, but as turned out, everyone lies. Lies Bidzina Ivanishvili, lies the Prime Minister, lies the speaker and the heads of parliamentary committees, ”Levan Gogichaishvili explains.


Gogichaishvili  believes that the only way to change the situation is the activity of the media and the public.

“I am sure that the law is hindered by Bidzina Ivanishvili and his informal business entourage as this is  their own income. Due to  an aggressive marketing policy, more and more people are  becoming  addicted to gambling. Those who oppose restrictions on gambling are indifferent to the country and its citizens, ” the independent MP  notes.

In his opinion, counteraction from businessmen close to the government  puts the country in a very difficult situation - the social situation of citizens sharply worsens that directly affects the country.
