Upon the initiative of the RSO Parliament Speaker Znaur Gassiev, an agreement “On Fair Election” was signed at the Press-Center “Parliamentary Election 2009”. The Agreement was signed by the representatives of the four political parties participating in the election to the Parliament of the Republic of South Ossetia on 31 May 2009.
“It is high time to think about policy. And one should understand that even if anything is not perfect with these parties Время требует подумать о политике. И надо прямо сказать, если что-то несовершенно пока в этих , they should not be rebuked for this. They had recently gone through hostilities. “Transition from war to peace realities is now one the agenda”, said Znaur Gassiev before the signing of the Agreement.
Znaur Gassiev is a highly respected personality in the Republic of South Ossetia. His opinion is listened to by all political forces in the Republic. The 84-year old Parliament Speaker had once again called on the population of South Ossetia to take part in the public and political life of the state.
“As the oldest representative, I deemed it necessary to do it. So that they would not make mistakes.
They know how it is to die and bury their friends. But they were never involved in what is called politics. They are just beginners. But they are experienced in assessing values. Life is the biggest value, and they know it. Therefore, we should help them,” underscored the Speaker.
The RSO Parliament Speaker called on all the party leaders for consolidation.
“This is not an oath, it is not an official speech either. But, this is a declaration meant to ensure smooth election, so that a counterpart is seen not as an enemy, but a friend. So that they are still together, as if they were in the same trench or in the same trouble”.
