TSKHINVAL, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — South Ossetia's former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva said she was planning to appeal to the Russian presidential candidate hoping for him to give a legal assessment of the ruling given by the republic’s Supreme Court, which annulled the results of the November 2011 election.
"If such an assessment is given, it will be clear that the ruling is a meaningless piece of paper. An assessment from Vladimir Zhirinovsky, an experienced lawyer, will be sufficient," Dzhioyeva said.
According to the Opposition leader, she has already sent part of invitations for her inauguration which she had set for February 10
"I've sent part of the invitations, and another part will be forwarded to Abkhazia, the Dniester region, Nagorno Karabakh and North Caucasus republics," she said.
Meanwhile, the Opposition has not yet decided on the venue of inauguration. Among the demands brought forward to South Ossetia caretaker president Vadim Brovtsev, is the provision of space for inauguration ceremony.
The handover of presidential powers remains Dzhioyeva's key demand. "Brovtsev has not given a written answer to me yet; /he said/ neither "yes" nor "no." I'm inclined to be peaceful, I'll act in line with the law, and those who confront it will later be held responsible for it," Dzhioyeva said.
The republic's Supreme Court annulled the results of the presidential election held in South Ossetia in November 2011 citing numerous violations that took place during the election campaign and on the voting day.
A repeat election is scheduled for March 25. Former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva who regards herself as president-elect, does not intend to participate, saying the new election is illegitimate.
