TSKHINVAL, May 30, 23:31 /ITAR-TASS/. South Ossetia needs a better legal framework, with some of its current laws to be aligned with the constitution, Southe Ossetian President Leonid Tibilov told Itar-Tass on Friday, adding that it will be a task for a new parliament, since the current one “seems to be failing to cope with this task.”
Parliamentary elections in South Ossetia will be held on June 8. Nine political parties will compete for 34 parliamentary seats. South Ossetian parliament is formed under the proportional system.
“Our lawmakers were lagging behind the problems facing the new, developing state,” Tibilov said. “Lawmaking activities are the most topical issue now, when South Ossetia has the task of strengthening its legal base. Lack of professionalism, disregard of scientific principles of lawmaking activities - all this has led to the situation when we have numerous contradictory norms.”
Tbiliov expressed the hope that the new parliament “would be formed from professionals and patriots.” “The republic’s wellbeing will depend on their professionalism and responsibility before the people,” he stressed.
The noted that the election campaign proceeded smoothly. “Political opponents do not let themselves resort to severe criticism of each other, showing political foresight to avoid superfluous tensions,” the South Ossetian president said, “We remember only too well the political crisis of late 2011. Today, we cherish our social accord that was reached though such big efforts. I hope there will be stability in society on the days ahead of the voting and on the elections day, too.”
He pledged that the republic’s leaders would spare no effort to ensure the people’s right to express its will in a calm atmosphere, in line with democratic norms and current laws.
“Whatever the results of the voting might be, whichever forces win seats in the parliament, South Ossetia’s foreign policy course will be the same - strategic partnership with Russia, maximal integration with it and strengthening of our state’s international authority,” Tibilov stressed. “South Ossetia has been faithful to these principles from the very beginning of its path as an independent state and will follow this course in future.
