A unified voting bloc can be created in Abkhazia
The Council of Elders of Abkhazia issued a proposal to create a unified voting bloc to all candidates for the presidency of the Republic of Abkhazia. "In order to fully engage all the electoral resources of electoral blocs, it would be useful for candidates for the President to form a single voting bloc to overcome differences that occur among the voters" - news agency "Apsnipress" quoted widespread appeal of the Council of Elders.
If this proposal would be unacceptable for candidates, the City Council intends to submit an initiative with a proposal "to attract human resource capacity of electoral blocs to the administration of the state". These steps, according to the Council of Elders, will help to overcome discrepancy in society and ensure the participation of people in government managment.
"Under the Constitution, the people manages the state by itself or through its representatives, one of whom is President .... Experience shows that not the whole nation has its representatives in the organs of state administration in a multiparty system. There are violations of the constitutional right of people to govern through their representatives. We believe that the relevant branches of government need to pay attention to this fact"- said the Council of Elders.
