MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) —— International observers confirmed that the first round of the presidential election in South Ossetia complied election standards.
“According to assessments made by the international observers from Russia, France, Poland, Ukraine, Israel and other countries at a press conference in Tskhinval, the election was held in accordance with the election standards, without serious irregularities,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday, November 14.
On November 13, South Ossetia held a presidential election and a referendum on the status of the Russian language. According to preliminary data, the turnout was 67.05 percent.
