GUAM’s last favor to Mishiko2011-11-30 10:06
GUAM, an organization in pursuit of democracy and economic progress comprising Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldavia, in an attempt to please Tbilisi refused to acknowledge legitimacy of presidential elections the second round of which took place in South Ossetia yesterday.
Yet, even members of the organization that is now breaking down in view of unsurpassable contradictions between member states can't say whether this refusal has any political weight.
The parliamentary assembly of the Organization for democracy and economic development, better known for abbreviation of the member states in it (Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldavia - GUAM) took place in Kiev last week in the run-up to the second round of presidential elections in South Ossetia. As a result there appeared a resolution expression of people's will.
"GUAM reconfirms decisive support of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia, inviolability of its internationally recognized borders in compliance with international law, UN Charter, Helsinki Act and UN Security Council's resolutions o the matter, - the statement of the organization runs. - Accordingly, the so-called elections can't be considered legitimate and must be a priori acknowledged as invalid".
What is there to say? If GUAM does not acknowledge legitimacy, elections have no chance to be recognized... South Ossetia will never become a full-fledged state. Mikheil Saakashvili celebrates another loud diplomatic victory.
Yet, looks like nobody noticed the statement. The central election commission in Tskhinval continued working without interruptions. South Ossetians too did not mind the statement that their voting is nothing. On November 27 they came to polling stations and gave their votes for those whom they view worthy of presidency. How come? What is the point in GUAM's resolution then?
