Part of the deputies of the de facto parliament of South Ossetia is still in a boycott mode. Due to the lack of quorum e. წ. Parliament fails to convene. Disagreement between the leaders of the ruling party “Edinaia Ossetia” and opposition MPs e. წ. This was followed by a parliamentary quota of candidates to be appointed to the Central Election Commission.
Fourteen e. წ. The MP insists on fulfilling the preliminary agreement with the ruling party. According to this agreement, “People’s Party”, “Nikhas”, e. წ. The Union of Deputies has to elect one candidate in the commission for “Justice”, and two – to the ruling “Edinaia Ossetia”. Opposition e. წ. According to the deputies, an agreement on the redistribution of the quota was reached with the speaker of the de facto parliament and the leader of the faction “United Ossetia”, but at the last moment this agreement was violated by politicians supporting Bibilov. De facto Parliament Speaker Alan Tadtaev E. წ. Deputies offered to put each candidate to the vote and wait to see who would get what votes, but the opposition demanded that a pre-arranged agreement be implemented, as none of their candidates would run in the CEC by individual vote – they said the ruling party favored candidates. Because of this e. წ. The opposition has boycotted and the de facto parliament is unable to convene due to a lack of quorum. De facto parliament speaker Alan Tadtaev denied any promises to the opposition in a speech on local television.
„I no I could Anything Ones Gave me Deputies For the building that In terms of, that We The voice We would give This If that Candidate. this Is Each MP Private Makes sense And Private Position And he this Should To express Parliament Sitting, Voting. I I think, that this Oppositionist Deputies They realize Their An error, their Actions Lawlessness, We should discuss with them how to vote for the composition of the Central Election Commission, individually or by list. All this is to be decided by the deputies. ”
Opposition e. წ. MP Davit Sanakoev says that such speeches are strange for him – e. წ. Parliamentary activity has always been based on agreements and compromises between factions, at least until the legislature “Edinaia Ossetia” came to power.
“It simply came to our notice then. The speaker, in fact, says that there can be no preliminary agreement between the parliamentary factions because at the sitting each MP votes as he wants. By this logic, a political party cannot make any commitment, which means that the voter should not believe in election promises. Indeed, if everyone should vote only according to their own views, then what common party, collective obligations can we talk about? Nothing to say, but it seems to me that all this is an excuse, because the ruling party is distinguished by almost military discipline. They always vote according to the signal of the party leadership. I think nothing has changed now. “
Davit Sanakoev said that after the failed parliamentary session, the opposition twice sent negotiators, Amiran Diakonov and Alan Pliev, to speaker Tadtayev to discuss ways out of the current situation, although, according to Sanakoev, Tadtayev twice refused to disagree and disagreed.
The former speaker of the de facto parliament, Stanislav Kochiev, believes that an agreement can be reached if desired, and that the members of the previous convocation have repeatedly reached an agreement during a similar vote.
“There is a practice such as a package agreement. Let me give you an example. Let’s say there is a new parliament made up of different factions. They do not know what to expect from colleagues, so be careful not to trust each other. But they want to divide the committees among themselves, to elect the Presidium of Parliament. Then, by package agreement, ie by one vote, they elect all the chairmen of the committees or the composition of the presidium, ie the whole list of positions on which an agreement was reached the day before, is put to a vote at the same time. This can also be applied to the formation of the Central Election Commission, as there is now more disagreement in Parliament than ever before. Speaker of Parliament Should To regulate All Process, To invite One Fraction, Second, To ask questions Them And Consider each Candidate All From the side. When They are Common Before agreement They will come, Submit a unified list to the Parliament for voting, taking into account all quotas. “This is the only normal way out of a difficult situation.” – Stanislav Kochiev told “Echo of the Caucasus”.
Opposition lawmakers, who are consulting with experts and civil activists, say that now everything depends on Anatoly Bibilov and his decision, however, in their opinion, Bibilov does not like to compromise and thus deepens the crisis. According to a Tskhinvali source on Radio Liberty, with the spring presidential elections approaching, the situation in South Ossetia will worsen, as Bibilov is unable to negotiate with the opposition and only knows how to solve problems by force.
