Curious Misha failed in Tskhinval2011-10-06 12:57
The Abkhazians have already proved that they're able to provide a civilized succession. Even political opponents recognized presidential elections in the Black Sea republic, which has won Ankvab, as exemplary in terms of compliance with democratic norms. Now it's South Ossetia's turn, where the new head of state will be elected on November 13. Despite the serious heat of electoral struggle, Tskhinval can keep it within the law - much to the chagrin of Tbilisi, which really does not want another confirmation of the independence of the former autonomy.
independence of the former autonomy.
Georgian authorities are watching election campaign passing in the South Ossetian with particular attention. Tbilisi is trying to seize every opportunity to prove the lack of independence of local politicians and predetermination of the results of the presidential race. So, Saakashvili's henchmen met with joy conflict between the failed candidate - the head coach of Russian national wrestling team Dzambulatom Tedeyev - and official authorities of South Ossetia.
Getting ready to skim the cream from the political turmoil in the former autonomous region, Tbilisi hurried to call the events happening in Tskhinvali farce and clan fighting. "We won't give unnecessary hype this issue, this is local conflict between the clans, - said Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia David Jalagania on Monday. - But it is unpleasant in terms of stability and security". Apparently, this implies that a civilized political struggle and stability are possible only under the wing of Mishiko. And Zurab Zhvania's fate confirms it.
But, to the great chagrin of the politicians in Tbilisi, Eduard Kokoity did not impose a state of emergency in the country and expose repression opposition. Even limitation of entry to the territory of South Ossetia, installed since Friday to help stabilize unrest, were canceled the next day.
"Now the situation is stabilized. Dzambolat Tedeyev is in his house, and nobody is going to storm his house or to take any other security measures" - said Eduard Kokoity.
Tedeyev's removal from the election was completely legitimate. "I believe that the CEC made the right decision. Tedeyev is not a citizen of South Ossetia and though by birth he has such a right, Mr. Tedeyev never appealed to authorities of South Ossetia to grant him citizenship. A passport, which he presented in CEC, was not issued by South Ossetian Interior Ministry" - said South Ossetian leader.
