The Georgian President has put forward a number of legislative initiatives on Thursday, presenting them at a briefing for television companies at the presidential palace.

The first initiative proposes decriminalization of economic crimes in the country.

"This is predetermined by the deteriorating economic situation in the country and the fact that this year began with a low business activity, and we currently need to activate the investment flow," Saakashvili said.

In view of the emergency economic situation he proposed complete economic amnesty and full decriminalization of the economic activity.

The second draft law was on privacy. Saakashvili said prosecution will be introduced for distribution of information on citizens' private life.

The third initiative concerned lifelong support of the dead soldiers' families by pensions. In addition, the president called for doubling military pensions.

Saakashvili stressed that all these initiatives have already been submitted to the Georgian parliament for discussion.
