Under the proposal, the moratorium should also apply for illegal construction on the territory of state, municipal, and private property in the fishing villages along the Black Sea coast.

MPs of the of ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms party, DPS, argued that the moratorium had to apply only in cases when the demolition orders had been issued for the sole place of residence of a household.

DPS MPChetin Kazak explained that the bill had to be amended before it was conclusively adopted.
