South Ossetian President Leonid Tibilov signed Executive Order on Resignation of the Government of the Republic. The
Head of State announced it during today's meeting with members of the Cabinet. First Deputy Prime Minister Domenty
Kulumbegov has been appointed Acting Prime Minister.
According to the President, for a year and a half the government has made significant progress in the rehabilitation
process and in the development of social sphere of the Republic.
"We worked as a team, I have good, I would say, even friendly relations with all members of the government. I made
every effort as the head of the executive branch of the state power to consolidate the government to address urgent
problems of economic recovery of the country. But my efforts are, unfortunately, unsuccessful, "- said Tibilov.
He has pointed out that the public of the Republic is convinced that over the past period using the allocated funds could
be achieved more success.
"Socio-economic status of South Ossetia and the challenges we face dictate the need to take decisive actions," - said
Leonid Tibilov.
The President also called his reasons to resort to such a radical measure.
He said that over a year and a half of his presidency, the Government of the Republic had failed to develop and
implement a clear system of control of the executive authorities.
"To some extent, there was a gap between the center and the districts of the country. It is unacceptable that during this
period was not held any government meeting in the districts, and the villagers have never seen some of the heads of our
ministries and agencies, "- he said.
The Head of State also considers a serious omission of the government of South Ossetia the inadmissible weakening
control over the implementation of instructions of the President, as well as over the execution of their own resolutions and
"How else could be explained the actual failure to perform the tasks arising from the President's Message to the
Parliament and people of South Ossetia on April 30, 2013?," - said Tibilov, noting that the government of the Republic of
South Ossetia unilaterally, in contravention of the previously adopted by the Intergovernmental Commission's decision,
had inconsistently redistributed the allocated funds, that adversely affected the timely funding and implementation of the
Investment program.
Tibilov has reminded that last year the experts of the Russian Federation Chamber of Accounts conducted an inspection of
the targeted use of funds allocated by Russia for recovery needs of South Ossetia, as a result of which were disclosed a
number of violations and shortcomings.
"Despite the fact that they were made in previous years, the current government of the Republic has not taken any
measures to prevent and eliminate their causes. A number of other serious shortcomings and omissions leave me no
choice and I have made a decision to dissolve the Government of the Republic of South Ossetia", - concluded the
