Kokoity: In South Ossetia the "Orange Revolution" takes place
According to the current head of South Ossetia - Eduard Kokoity, the situation that is unfolding in his country these days can be regarded as the "orange revolution". As reported by "Georgia News" with reference to RIA Novosti, Kokoity announced this position at a meeting with members of the public Tskhinval.
"What is happening today - it's a kind of "orange revolution", and it will fail. Everything will develop according to the decisions of the prosecutor and the people of South Ossetia", said Kokoity. He further noted that he "doesn't cling to power, but wants to pass it in compliance with the Constitution".
Earlier today, the representatives of Alla Dzhioeva's Staff - the opposition candidate for election to the presidency of South Ossetia, which, according to unofficial reports, won the second round of elections on December 10 this year, have assigned a day of the inauguration ceremony. This was done despite the fact that the Supreme Court has recognized results of the second round of voting in South Ossetia, which took place on November 27, null and void.
"The people of South Ossetia voted for Dzhioeva, so we assign the inauguration on December 10 at 14:00", the representative of the staff of the opposition candidate noted in an interview, Where and how will be the inauguration held, was not specified.
Recall, the situation in South Ossetia escalated after the second round of elections for a new president on November 27. According to preliminary data, Dzhioeva won the elections, but due to violations the country's Supreme Court declared the vote invalid. Later, new elections were scheduled for March 25, 2012.
Dzhioeva and her supporters do not agree with such developments. They are doing their best to defend their right to win in this election of the head of South Ossetia.
