TBILISI, DFWatch – Part of the population in Georgia’s breakaway region of South Ossetia will boycott the Russian elections for Duma on Sunday, according to Russian media reports.

A large section of the population in the Tskhinvali region supported Alla Dzhioyeva in the so-called presidential elections. Kremlin, on the other hand, supported the candidate who came in second, Anatoly Bibilov.

Bibilov demanded that de facto Supreme Court announced the so-called elections invalid and prevented the winner Alla Dzhioyeva from participate in the new election, because of the actions of her supporters.

Afterwards supporters of Dzhioyeva took to the streets in Tskhinvali demanding that the current so-called president Eduard Kokoiti resign and transfers government power to Dzhioyeva.

They began on November 30 in front of the de-facto government building and still continuing.

According to Russian media, Dzhioyeva’s supporters in South Ossetia who are Russian citizen have decided not to participate in the Russian elections for State Duma on December 4, despite an appeal from de facto president Kokoity for them to participate.

The de facto republic is planning to open four election precincts for the Russian election on  Sunday.
