TSKHINVAL, February 2 (Itar-Tass) — Candidates for the presidency of South Ossetia are against the inauguration announced by ex-candidate Alla Dzhioyeva, who regards herself as president-elect. Their stances on the cancellation of the November 2011 election results differ, but all of them believe the inauguration may have negative consequences.
According to Deputy Defense Minister of South Ossetia Igor Alborov, whose initiative group has already been registered by the Central Election Commission, the moves of Dzhioyeva who has announced her inauguration on February 10 are illegal. “The parliament has already scheduled a repeat election for March 25, and there is no point in agitating people now,” Alborov said.
The former head of the Committee for Information and Communications, Georgy Kabisov, noted that his attitude to the inauguration plans is clear as he intends to run for presidency on March 25.
One of Alla Dzhioyeva’s allies, Sergei Zasseyev, who has also decided to take part in the re-election, said the opposition has the only way out – act in accordance with law and try to win in March.
Parliament vice-speaker Mira Tskhovrebova said the planned inauguration “is a real threat to national security and peace,” warning that one must never go beyond the law.
The presidential election in South Ossetia in November 2011 was declared invalid because of numerous violations. The parliament ruled to hold a repeat election on March 25. Former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva does not recognize that although she has the right to take part in the re-election. However, she regards herself as president-elect and plans her inauguration for February 10.
