As reported by the Rosbalt, the Embassy of South Ossetia in Moscow is preparing for the presidential elections. The Embassy has issued a statement saying that   "all the citizens of the Republic of South Ossetia, who are 18 years old at the day of voting and have a passport of a citizen of South Ossetia may realize their right to vote there. According to the CEC of the republic, during presidential elections in the republic, there will be opened 84 polling stations: one in Moscow, all the rest - in South Ossetia.

The next presidential elections in South Ossetia are getting closer. They are scheduled on March 25. Formally, this will be the second presidential elections in the country after obtaining independence as a result of armed confrontation between Russia and Georgia in August 2008. Recall, the elections in the Republic South Ossetia in late December 2011 were canceled after the Court decision which had admitted the outcome of the elections nullity. Alla Dzhioeva, the former Education Minister, won that election; after the cancelation of  the election results, she had announced about her inauguration apart from the authorities.

Despite all Alla Dzhioeva's tries, on the eve of her unrecognized inauguration her election staff was "assaulted" be the representatives of the local law enforcement officers. As a result of the storming, Allla Dzhioeva was hospitalized with the suspicion of cerebrovascular accident.

In early march, Alla Dzhioeva stated that the authorities had opened a criminal case against her on charges of forcible seizure of power. According to her, she learned this by accident - no one had brought accusations against her.

Contrary to past elections in late 2011, when there were 17 presidential candidates, now there are only 4 rivals. They are ex-chairman of the KGB Leonid Tibilov, Commissioner for Human Rights under President of the Republic David Sanakoyev, Ambassador of South Ossetia in Russia Dmitry Medoyev and leader of the local Communist Party Stanislav Kochiev.

According to the, experts, watching the situation in the country, recognize that electoral race has quite a civilized nature, the candidates for president are the most worthy representatives of the people who use the authority not only in South Ossetia, but also abroad. At the same time, no one can talk about global intervention of external forces in the campaign. Neighbors of South Ossetia are rather calm: Moscow will be satisfied with victory of any candidate, Tbilisi, on the contrary, is outraged by the very fact of presidential elections in the country.

Meanwhile, South Ossetian opposition leader Allah Dzhioeva told RIA Novosti that she would not support any candidate at the upcoming presidential elections.

However, Dzhioeva stressed that she urged her supporters to attend the elections. "I urge all my supporters to exercise their constitutional right. Each person must make a choice and to vote on Sunday", Dzhioeva said.
