TSKHINVAL, January 23 (Itar-Tass) — Leader of the South Ossetian opposition, former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva said she would wait for a response from acting President Vadim Brovtsev to the ultimatum to hand over power to her hands.
“I put my demands. Now I want to her the response,” Dzhioyeva told journalists on Monday.
The opposition leader said she did not intend to take part in the March 25 presidential elections because she considered them illegitimate.
Meanwhile, preparations for the elections are well underway. The Central Election Commission registered four initiative groups. Among them, the initiative group nominate parliament deputy speaker Yuri Dzitstsoity.
The presidential elections in South Ossetia held in November 2011 were recognised invalid due to numerous violations during the pre-election campaign and on the day of voting. This led to protest actions organised by supporters of Dzhioyeva who received the majority of votes. The political crisis was not overcome after Dzhioyeva and former South Ossetian president Eduard Kokoity signed an agreement.
At present, Dzhioyeva said she revoked her signature and intended to hold the own inauguration. “I don’t recognise the presidential elections set for March 25, 2012. I don’t intend to take part in them,” Dzhioyeva said. “If we don’t receive an answer [from acting president Vadim Brovtsev] till January 23, I’ll ask you to gather once again in order to appoint the inauguration,” she added.
