After the election of President Leonid Tibilov the president a forming of ruling line began in South Ossetia. The new government should become a symbol of civic unity in South Ossetia. This unity of all the parties should bring the republic out of chaos, destruction and corruption. According to Tibilov, this government may include anyone who is willing to work for the good of the country. According to the unofficial conversations in the government, there will be a place even for Alla Dzhioeva's supporters.
The Kommersant newspaper reported today: Allah Dzhioeva and Anatoly Barankevich will become members of the new Cabinet of Ministers of South Ossetia. Dzhioeva was offered the post of deputy prime minister for social affairs and Barankevich - the head of the government. One of the closest associates of Mrs. Dzhioeva Rodion Siukaev should take place the Minister of Health; and an activist of oppositionist's headquarters Jamal Dzhigkaev will become the head of the Leninogorsk district.
GTimes correspondent contacted on this occasion with Yuri Vazzagov, political columnist of the newspaper "South Ossetia". In an interview South Ossetian expert said "there is such an opportunity". At least, "Jamal Dzhigkaev has already been appointed the head of Leningor area. Alla Dzhioeva really has been unofficially offered the post of deputy prime minister. As for Rodion Sikuaev, he is one of the main contenders for the post of Minister of Health. But while the Prime Minister is not approved, it is not worth talking about this with absolute certainty".
Vazzagov added that everything is still being discussed, but the crucial proposals have been made. "A post in the government was offered to Anatoly Barankevich, an offer to Alla Dzhioeva was also made. Leonid Tibiloov, as promised, offered David Sanakoyev a ministerial post. But it is still difficult to say something for sure about this. At the last minute changes may occur. I can tell you exactly that changes will take place. Maybe not very big, but they will happen".
The main candidate for prime minister is Rostislav Khugaev. "He's a prime candidate. Main consultations and negotiations are still around him. After May 15, the matter shall be finally settled", Vazzagov said.
He is not related in kinship with former Prosecutor General of South Ossetia Taimuraz Khugaev. "Even if he was, it would not solve anything, since the clans in South Ossetia are not built on the family principle, but on the common interests of different people", the environment of Leonid Tibilov told GTimes. "Rostislav Khugaev is the head of the Ossetian diaspora in Samara, a businessman and philanthropist. For many years he has assisted a variety of creative teams in South Ossetia. Rostislav Khugaev was born in Kvaysa. He has often helped his fellow countrymen: the children, the elderly, those seriously ill. Child benefits in Kvaysa and Dzausky area has been paid at his expense. Due to his active social activities he has become known in South Ossetia. Khugaev has not yet been engaged in political or economic activity in South Ossetia. His main occupation is the construction business. Rostislav Khugaev is the head of the construction holding company "Amond". Until recently he lived and worked in Samara, built roads and houses there", a source in South Ossetia told our edition.
