TSKHINVAL, March 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Candidate for South Ossetian president Dmitry Medoyev, the republic’s ambassador to Russia, who finished third in the first round of voting on Sunday, has recognized the results of the voting.
Addressing a news conference on Monday, Medoyev expressed confidence that the elections of the South Ossetian president will ultimately strengthen the republic’s independence. He also said he hoped “all wishes of the voters expressed during the election campaign will finally be implemented.”
As for his plans, he said he would continue “fulfilling his diplomatic duties” and pledged to “remain an active participant in the political process.” He thanked the South Ossetian Central Election Commission and law enforcement agencies for their efforts to ensure security during the voting. He called on South Ossetians to take part in the runoff elections due within 15 days, presumably on April 8.
According to the election results, Medoyev won less than 25 percent of the vote and finished third after Leonid Tibilov, the former head of the republic’s state security committee, and David Sanakoyev, the republic’s human rights ombudsman.
