Malashkhia: Ankvab should take steps towards Georgia2011-09-26 17:25
As the chairman of the parliamentary commission to restore Georgia's territorial integrity Shota Malashkhia, Abkhazia will retain its identity only if their president Ankvab make steps towards Georgia. According to "Georgia-News", such position expressed Malashkhia in an interview to "Rustavi-2", commenting the inauguration of the new head of Abkhazia passing today in Sukhum.
"The only way to preserve identity of Abkhazia is possible, if only Ankvab make steps towards Georgia. In this case, he can achieve it, and if not, he will finish like his predecessor" - said Malashkhia. However, he didn't specify what he meant by the word "finish".
Recall, elections for a new head of the Abkhaz state took place on August 26 this year. The vice-president Alexander Ankvab won them with 55 percent of the vote.
"Our candidate won about 55 percent of the vote. It is in absolute terms, according to our calculations based on data from the precinct and district election commissions, 58 000 people voted for him. Shamba took second place. He won 23 000 votes. Khajimba was 3rd. He received the votes of 22,000 citizens", said campaign manager Leonid Lakerbaya.
He noted that Ankvab won in all the regions of the country. "He won at all sites by a wide margin from his competitors, who do not doubt in his victory" - said Lakerbaya.
He also noted that, according to the head of the CEC Abkhazia Batal Tabagua, "there was no complaints to the CEC". "There was not recorded any of such cases, physically or legally" - said Lakerbaya.
The need for early presidential elections in Abkhazia was caused by the tragic death of President Sergei Bagapsh. He died on 29 May this year in the Russian capital on 63-year life.
Prior to this, May 21, at 83rd hospital of the Federal Medical-Biological Agency of Russia President of Abkhazia had surgery on the right lung, which was successful. However, further state of Bagapsh has deteriorated and doctors couldn't save him.
