Things are calm in Tskhinval

Things are calm in Tskhinval. 22766.jpegSaakashvili may refer to Edward Kokoyty's regime in Tskhinval as "illegal" or "self-proclaimed" but even his most zombified supporters admit that the South Ossetian leader surpasses his colleague from Tbilisi in terms of political culture. Notorious behavior that Dzambolat Tedeev, a frustrated presidential candidate of South Ossetia, demonstrated in the central election committee in Tskhinval, would take him to jail in "democratic" Georgia. Yet, in South Ossetia the troublemaker is protected by special police units against people


shocked at the rampage.

A vandalistic attempt of Dzambolat Tedeev, head coach of Russia's national free-style wrestling team, and his supporters to break into the building of the South Ossetian central electoral committee at the time of the voting for his nomination, can only be defined as pressure on state authorities. The hooligans were not confused by the fact that the authorities of the republic made unprecedented concessions for the potential presidential candidate: he was present at the voting against the Central electoral committee rules.

Despite the fact that his nomination was rejected in view of insufficient length of residence (less than ten years), Tedeev has all chances to challenge the decision in court.

"He has time to contest the central electoral committee's decision in court, he is free to do that. We act in full compliance with the law and Constitution", - Edward Kokoyty, president of South Ossetia, remarked on the issue.

Yet, the free-style wrestler seems to misinterpret the notion of "freedom" and puts political struggle above law going into provocations. At first he stated that the special police force employees submitted resignation letters in demonstration of solidarity with him and now take shifts near his home ready to protect him against possible repressions on the part of the authorities. As Merab Puhaev, commander of the special police force of the republic reported: his subordinates are ready to protect the failed candidate in order to suppress possible disorder, not as demonstration of solidarity. "We are ready to put up the guard since people of the republic insist that Tedeev be turned out of the republic", - Merab Puhaev explained to the journalists.
