TSKHINVAL, December 1 (Itar-Tass) —— South Ossetian former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva leads a constructive dialogue with the Russian side, which is aimed at settlement of the crisis situation in the republic.
“Now, we are going home to gain force, and in the morning we shall discuss everything,” she told her allies who gathered by the government building.
Ealier, South Ossetia’s presidential administration said that head of Russia’s presidential department on regional and cultural relations with foreign countries Sergei Vinokurov had arrived in the republic. The source said that Russia’s representative would participate in settlement of the situation there.
Despite a snowfall, hundreds of people stay in the square, demanding that the Supreme Court’s decision proclaiming the results of the November 27 presidential election invalid. Dzhioyeva filed a complaint with the Supreme Court. The complaint was prompted by “85 percent of protocols from polling stations certified, among others, by [presidential candidate] Anatoly Bibilov’s representatives, and by conclusions made by international observers about the absence of irregularities during voting that could have affected the outcome of the election, and the Central Election Commission chairman’s announcement that the election was valid”, Dzhioyeva said.The Supreme Court of South Ossetia said it would consider the complaint in the morning of December 1. Dzhioyeva appeared to be dissatisfied by the decision and insisted that the complaint be considered immediately. Meanwhile, South Ossetians, who came to the central square in front of the government headquarters in Tskhinval in the morning, said they would not leave until the Supreme Court cancels its decision.
Earlier, Dzhioyeva asked her supporters to go home, but people refused to leave. A rumour is circulated among the protesters that incumbent South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity has ordered a revision of the court ruling.
South Ossetian and North Ossetian bloggers are running online reports from snow-swept Tskhinval on Twitter and Facebook and have already dubbed the situation in South Ossetia “snow revolution”.
