Tibilov Wins South Ossetia Election with 52% Vote (09.04.12)

Former South Ossetian KGB head Leonid Tibilov has won the presidential election in the republic with 54.12 percent of the ballot with all votes finally counted, an election committee source.


David Sanakoev came second with 42.65 percent, and 0.96 percent voted against all the candidates.


“We won. I express acknowledgement and gratitude to all my supporters. Now we will all have to build a new successful rule-of-law state,” Tibilov said.


The turnout in the small Caucasus republic of 72,000 stood at 63 percent two hours before the vote’s end, far above the minimum threshold of 30 percent, the local CEC said.


No major violations were reported throughout the day, and a vote monitor from Russia’s CEC called the vote fair on Sunday. The European Union and the United States said earlier they do not recognize the vote as legitimate because they still consider South Ossetia part of Georgia.
