TSKHINVAL, June 07 /ITAR-TASS/. South Ossetia’s president Leonid Tibilov has voiced the certainty that the parliamentary election due on June 8 will be held in strict compliance with the applicable laws and the turnout will be high.
“I can promise our society that the republican leadership and yours truly, the head of state, have exerted efforts essential to the observance of all requirements and norms of election legislation and to ensuring the citizens’ rights,” Tibilov said in a televised address on Friday.
He said all political parties participating in the elections were given equal opportunities in conducting their election campaigns, including those through government-run media.
“I do hope that the newly-elected legislative body will go ahead with the best traditions of parliamentarianism and successfully implement all tasks that the people of the Republic of Ossetia have set to it,” Tibilov said.
South Ossetia will be electing its parliament for a sixth time. Nine political parties are participating. The 34-seat legislature is formed on the proportional principle.
