TSKHINVAL, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — The shoo-in for South Ossetian president, former head of the republic’s state security committee Leonid Tibilov, who has scored 42.5 percent of the vote in the first round of elections, said he was sure he would ultimately win the presidential race.
Addressing journalists on Monday after the Central Election Commission announced preliminary results, Tibilov said these were preliminary results while he needed “a convincing and sweeping victory.”
“It is necessary look for and find arguments that will convince those voters who cast their votes for other candidates in the first round,” he said.
He vowed to hold a fair campaign. “We will be holding a fair campaign in a bid to win over voters, despite the hard-line competition,” he said.
