Authorities have joined the public celebration on the main street of the Georgian capital city as the country recognizes its Independence Day.

Almost all Ministers and heads of Governmental agencies presented their offices to people today in small stalls on Rustaveli Ave.

Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani presented several services her Ministry provided. She helped the country’s President Giorgi Margvelashvili to get a brand new ID card at her pavilion while giving a new-style marriage document to Prime Minister Irakli Garibahsvili and his wife.

People were able to go to her pavilion and learn about different services for free.
