The opposition of South Ossetia is not ready for dialogue with Kokoity
Election of oppositional party leader "Iron" took place in Tskhinval.
As reported by the "Echo of the Caucasus", the former defense minister of South Ossetia, Valery Tedeyev and former head of the local Ministry of Health Jemal Dzhigkaev fought for the post of head of the party. As a result of the voting of members of the political council Dzhigkaevym became head of the party.
New Chairman of the "Iron" said that he is not ready to talk about claims to the presidency yet. "We intend to announce our position about the policies of President Kokoity to the media" - said Dzhigkaev.
He also said that his party is not going to respond to the proposals of the president Eduard Kokoity who called his political opponents for a dialogue. "All "opposition" parties are feeding from the hands of the president". The "Iron" will never make any agreement with the president or his team" - said Jemal Dzhigkaev.
Note, during a recent meeting with representatives of the socio-political movements and parties in South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity said that the republic's authorities are ready to dialogue with their political opponents. "I'm also ready to lend a hand in friendship and harmony to all constructive progressive opposition forces of the Republic and join the discussion of any issues concerning the future of South Ossetia and socio-political situation in the country as a whole" - said Eduard Kokoity.
He added that the authorities are ready "to cease all illegal acts aimed at undermining security and stability in the republic".
He also noted the danger of calls of some opposition forces that act outside the territory of the Republic to overthrow the current government of South Ossetia. "Any problems of South Ossetia should be discussed here in South Ossetia, rather than somewhere abroad, to discredit the people and the republic" - said Eduard Kokoity.
