TSKHINVAL, February 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian ambassador in South Ossetia Dmitry Medoyev was nominated as a presidential candidate in South Ossetia. An initiative group held its meeting on Tuesday.
Vice speaker of the South Ossetian parliament Mira Tskhovrebova, who was also nominated as a presidential candidate for South Ossetia but withdrew her candidacy, voiced support for Medoyev’s nomination. “Not long ago I also gathered an initiative group but have not filed my documents with the Central Election Commission because of I was waiting for Medoyev’s arrival. I pin big hopes on this man for the revival of our motherland,” she said.
According to Medoyev, the decision to run for president was not a fast one. “I cannot stand aside from the country’s political life during such a historical moment,” he said. “This is the most important decision of my life and I hope for the help of all the people to open up a new page in history.” He also spoke in favour of “pooling together all healthy forces.” In his words, he does not recognize “any headquarters or parties.” “For me there is only one party and one headquarters – the Republic of South Ossetia,” he stressed.
