TSKHINVAL, March 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Leader of South Ossetia’s Communist Party Stanislav Kochiyev, who finished last in the first round of presidential polls on Sunday, said he would decide whom to support in the runoffs at a party plenary meeting.
It will be a collective decision, Kochiyev told Itar-Tass. “I will not take the decision by myself. The party, all my supporters and headquarters members will gather for a meeting at the end of the current week, and together we will decide whom of the candidates we would support,” he noted.
According to the election results announced by the republic’s Central Election Commission earlier on Monday, two candidates, Leonid Tibilov, the former head of the South Ossetian State Security Committee, and David Sanakoyev, the republic’s human rights ombudsman, will face runoff election. Two other candidates, South Ossetian ambassador to Moscow Dmitry Medoyev and Communist leader Stanislav Kochiyev, said they recognized the voting results.
According to preliminary information, the runoff elections of the South Ossetian president will be held on April 8.
