TSKHINVALI, March 6 (Itar-Tass) —— South Ossetian presidential candidates issued a joint statement on Tuesday.
The document signed in a live program of the IR state-run television and radio company says that the election must be fair and transparent and all the participants in the election process must be respected.
The candidates pledged to resist any attempts aimed to thwart the ballot, no matter where they might come from, to strictly abide by moral and legal norms in their campaigns, to prevent the spreading of libelous information and not to apply ‘dirty’ election technologies.
The document was signed by three out of four presidential candidates, namely, South Ossetian Ambassador to Russia Dmitry Medoyev, Human Rights Ombudsman David Sanakoyev and former State Security Committee Chairman Leonid Tibilov.
The fourth candidate, South Ossetian Communist Party leader Stanislav Kochiyev, was absent from the ceremony. He might sign the document later.
