TSKHINVAL, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — Oppositionists will meet with Acting President of South Ossetia Vadim Brovtsev on Tuesday, as was decided at a meeting earlier on Thursday between Alan Pliyev, supporter of former presidential hopeful Alla Dzhioyeva, and Brovtsev’s aide Andrei Khriyenko.
Pliev asked oppositionists planning an action of protest in front of the government building to disperse. About 30 supporters of Alla Dzhioyeva got together earlier on Thursday in Tskhinval’s central square near the government building to protest against the decision of the parliament not to relieve the prosecutor general and the chairman of the Supreme Court of their duties, as it was agreed upon in the agreement signed by President Eduard Kokoity and Alla Dzhioyeva.
The parliament of South Ossetia on Wednesday refused to meet the provision of the agreement between outgoing president Eduard Kokoity and former presidential hopeful Alla Dzhioyeva, as it kept the prosecutor general and the chairman of the Supreme Court in office.
In a secret ballot, the lawmakers refused to meet Eduard Kokoity's recommendation to relieve Prosecutor General Taimuraz Khugayev and Supreme Court Chairman Atsamaz Bichenov of their duties.
Their resignation was part of the compromise drawn between former president Kokoity and Opposition leader Dzhioyeva.
The other provisions of the agreement have been implemented. Kokoity stepped down himself and acknowledged Dzhioyeva's right to participate in repeat election.
For her part, Alla Dzhioyeva acknowledged the parliament's decision to set a new date for the presidential election for March 25, 2012 and persuaded her followers to stop street protests.
