TSKHINVALI, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The dismal atmosphere of political isolation of Alla Dzhioyeva in South Ossetia was the main cause of the sudden exacerbation of her health, President of the Revival International Association of Ossetian Communities Oleg Kudukhov said on Friday.
“Protest feelings went on decline after the resignation of Kokoity, and the opposition leaders split,” he said. The majority of opposition leaders agreed to the holding of the new presidential election on March 25, 2012, and some of them even joined the presidential race. The most colorful political personalities of the South Ossetian opposition, whose support contributed to the high political rating of Dzhioyeva, - Dzhambolat Tedeyev and Anatoly Barankevich – publicly supported the March 25 ballot.
In the end, none of Dzhioyeva’s close associates supported her decision to repeal the agreement and to hold her inauguration ceremony. “Dzhioyeva was left all alone with her election promises and a small group of supporters,” he said.
“All that had a negative effect on her health: she often felt depressed and fainted several times in January-February 2012,” Kudukhov said. The request of Tedeyev to vacate his house where the Dzhioyeva campaign staff had been staying since fall 2011 must have been the final straw, he said.
