The Communist Party of South Ossetia: in reality Kokoity does not support Bibilov
The head of the Communist Party of South Ossetia Stanislav Kochiyev believes that the president of South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity supports candidate for president Anatoly Bibilov during the election campaign "perforce".
"There are minions which he loves, and others are "perforce". So, Bibilov - is a perforce protege", he said in an interview to "Echo of Caucasus".
"The people is against the current government. I believe the power, in this respect, wants to "strangle" Bibilov in its arms, although it is obvious that they don't like him", added Kochiyev.
Recall, in mid-September, South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity has suggested the head of South Ossetian Emergencies Ministry Anatoly Bibilov to become a candidate at the upcoming presidential election.
Kokoity announced his support to Bibilov during a private meeting with the Minister. "Given your experience and knowledge, personal qualities, the most active participation in the establishment of the republic as an independent state, I think your candidacy most acceptable at this stage of development", said the president of South Ossetia.
In turn, Anatoly Bibilov thanked the president for his confidence. "For me, it is the great honor to be a candidate for president of South Ossetia", said the head of the Emergencies Ministry, adding that he would continue the current course of administration on the development of state and public welfare.
