Dzhioeva again raises the opposition for a rally
Today South Ossetian oppositionist Alla Dzhioeva announced her plans to bring her supporters back towards the building of the Government of South Ossetia at the central square of Tskhinval. As recalled by "Georgia News" with reference to RIA Novosti, on Sunday she urged the protesters to stop the protests that took place in the city for nearly ten days.
"A procession with placards will pass from the building of my staff and to the square. I do not know how many people will attend it, but we will wait for reaction from the authorities, and we'll carry similar marches every day", Dzhioeva said.
She explained that the current protests are connected with the fact that the South Ossetian authorities do not fulfill their agreements with the opposition, which implied the resignation of Eduard Kokoity, as well as removal of Attorney General of South Ossetia Taimuraz Khugaev and the head of the Supreme Court of the country Atsamaz Bichenov from their offices. Dzhioeva also won the right to participate in the presidential race, scheduled for March 25, 2012. For all this Dzhioeva promised to stop the protest action in Tskhinval.
However, December 14, the Parliament of South Ossetia voted against dismissals Attorney General and the head of the Supreme Court. Dzhioeva did not agree with such course of events.
The situation in South Ossetia escalated after the second round of elections for new president - November 27. According to preliminary data, published by the local CEC, Dzhioeva won. However, her rival - the head of the local MOE Anatoly Bibilov - accused the opposition leader of the violations. Having examined the relevant complaint by Bibilov, the Supreme Court of South Ossetia has decided to annul the election results. New the elections of the head of South Ossetia are scheduled for 25 March 2012.
