"The United States regrets the decision to hold so-called 'elections' in the South Ossetia region of Georgia on May 31, 2009, and recognizes neither the legality nor the results," he stated. "This represents a step away from a peaceful and negotiated solution to the conflict. The United States reiterates its support for Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders," he added.
On May 31st the elections to the parliament of South Ossetia took place. According to tentative results, Unity party has 46.38 per cent of votes; the People's Party and the Communist Party met the 7-per cent threshold necessary to win places in the parliament - 22.53 per cent voted for the former and 25.22 for the latter.
