TSKHINVAL, November 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Eleven candidates will participate in the presidential elections in South Ossetia, chairperson of the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) of the republic Bella Pliyeva said on Saturday. “Out of 17 candidates six withdrew their candidatures,” she said.
Two of the six candidates refused to take part in the elections at the very last moment - on Friday evening. Refusing to take part in the elections, each of the six candidates recommended their electors to cast their votes for any of the rest participants in the presidential elections.
