Opposition passions in South Ossetia

2009-05-21 17:11

2790.jpegThere are 10 days before the parliamentary election in South Ossetia and the scandal around two opposition parties does not subside. Supporters of the president don't deny that Edward Kokoyty is going to restrict his opponents' access to "the gravy train" - Russian aid for restoration. And Albert Jussoev, Stroyprogress director general supposedly sponsoring the opposition denies any association with it and is going to fight for power in the republic.


One of the ways to become famous is create a sensation around a name under promotion. It is unlikely South Ossetian Election Committee was going to do such a favor to "People's Party" and "Fydybaste" but they did it. After People's Party ex leader Roland Keleskhaev was ousted and Social party leader Vyacheslav Gobozov failed to comply with the habitancy standard in the Election Committee all those who bear a grudge against the authorities in the republic know well who they must vote for at the parliamentary election. But oppositionists are different. As stated by Edward Kokoyty in his interview with Kommersant "the so-called leaders who are not leaders in fact deliberately violated the constitution of South Ossetia... Gobozov did it on purpose. As for

Keleskhaev - he is the man who has never been respected in the party".

RSO President's Assistant Kosta Dzugaev was more explicit on the plans of South Ossetian oppositionists and resistance to them at the round table on democracy in the republic. "In view of protest moods it is not impossible that parliamentary communists might get a majority of votes which will make the parliament anti-presidential like at the time of Chibirov's presidency. Besides the huge amount of 11.5 billion rubles (huge even for Russia) for restoration of the republic nourishes the opposition's wish to be admitted to "the gravy train" which is suppressed by President Kokoyty", - Dzugaev is quoted by South Ossetia (a newspaper).

Earlier Georgia Times wrote, that the People's Party ex leader and resurged "Fydybasty" might be patronized by businessmen unhappy with the distribution of Russian funds for restoration of the republic after the Georgian aggression in 2008. This is what Edward Kokoyty said about these "backstage actors" in his interview with Kommersant: "South Ossetia will be governed by people that protected it. I recommend cooling down to all other counselors who have been sitting in their cozy Moscow apartments".
