Jioyeva Firm on 'Defending Election Victory'
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Nov.'11 / 16:12

Alla Jioyeva, an opposition candidate for the breakaway region’s leadership, told supporters on Wednesday that she told outgoing South Ossetian leader Eduard Kokoity to overturn a ruling by the Supreme Court which annulled the Sunday’s presidential runoff in which Jioyeva was leading.

According to a reporter blogging live from Tskhinvali for Russian news website, Kavkazsky Uzel, Jioyeva said she told Kokoity during a meeting in the government residence in the center of Tskhinvali that he should take a decision today and there was no time for thinking over it for few days.

According to the reports from Tskhinvali few thousand supporters of Jioyeva are gathered on the city’s main square outside the government building.

Reports say that the security guard of the government building had to fire warning shots into the air to prevent the crowed from breaking into the building.

Earlier on Wednesday Jioyeva and one of her key supporters, Anatoly Barankevich, the breakaway region’s former secretary of national security council, who split with Kokoity after the August, 2008 war, met with Russian diplomats in the embassy of Russia in Tskhinvali. The Russian Foreign Ministry said on November 30 that the political forces should respect a ruling by the Supreme Court annulling the Sunday’s runoff results in which the Kremlin-backed candidate, Anatoly Bibilov, lost the race with Jioyeva.

“We had a serious conversation,” Jioyeva said after the meeting with the Russian diplomats. “We have requested to help us in protecting the people’s choice. We have been promised that our demands would be conveyed to the Russian leadership.”
