TSKHINVAL, November 24 (Itar-Tass) —— South Ossetia’s presidential candidate Anatoly Bubilov suggests collecting around him and his election programme various political forces in the republic.
Bibilov is supported by opposing Communist Party, Popular Party of Roland Kelekhsayev and the Fidibasta (Motherland) party. Besides, Bibilov’s former competing candidates for presidency Merab Chigoyev, Alan Kotayev, Vadim Tskhovrebov and Alan Kochiyev support him, too.
Allies of Anatoly Bibilov organised a round table and published on Thursday a joint address to the nation. The address says about the necessity to consolidate the society and about the plans to organise a coalition government.
“We state about the necessity to form up a Government of public unanimity if we receive a mandate of trust from the electorate, which will represent all political forces of the Republic,” the address reads. “The main criterion for appointment in the government will be professional qualities of a candidate, not their party membership.”
Bibilov’s allies stress that “the vicious practice of dividing people into ours and others should go in the past forever” and urge their “political opponents to continue the process of uniting and consolidating also after the presidential election in the Republic is over.”
The first round of the presidential election in South Ossetia was on November 13. None of eleven candidates managed to gain the necessary support /over 50 percent/ to win.
Anatoly Bibilov tops the list over the first round. He is head of the republic’s emergency situations ministry. Alla Dzhoyeva, former minister of education, a retiree now, ranks second.
The second round of South Ossetia’s presidential election is due on November 27. A candidate should be supported by a majority of voters in order to win.
