TSKHINVAL, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — Opposition leader Alla Dzhioyeva, who has left the building of the Central Election Commission for several minutes, has urged her supporters to remain calm and not to fall for provocations.
“Kokoity has lost and let him hand over the reigns of power constitutionally and go calmly wherever he wants to or work in South Ossetia,” she said. “As a responsible person I cannot let anybody solve their problems through bloodshed,” Dzhioyeva stressed.
The chief of her headquarters, Mikhail Khanikayev, told Tass that officers guarding the government building periodically shoot into the air, and crack police keep arriving. According to him, some of presidential guards have been battered.
Dzhioyeva’s ally Barankevich has asked people in the square to move back a bit from the military protecting the building. About 5,000 people have got together in the square. He told the people that “the Central Election Commission has just confirmed that there is not a single claim on the election against Dzhioyeva’s election headquarters”.
“Despite this data of the Central Election Commission, the court has declared the results of the election null and void. However, neither the commission nor the parliament that has already set the election date, have the court decision. This is sheer lawlessness,” Barankevich said.
The Supreme Court of South Ossetia on Tuesday declared the returns from the November 27 presidential election null and void. The parliament of South Ossetia set March 25, 2012 as a new presidential election date.
South Ossetia’s Opposition leader Alla Dzhioyeva said she will not recognize the ruling by the republic's Supreme Court if it annuls the election results.
