„The de facto authorities in Abkhazia are holding today illegitimate “presidential elections”. Georgia condemns this sham process as yet another violation of our national sovereignty“, – The president of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili tweeted today.
The occupied region of Abkhazia is holding so-called “presidential elections” on August 25. So-called elections will be observed by delegations from both chambers of the Russian Parliament, representatives of the Committee for External Relations of St. Petersburg and the delegation from breakaway “South Ossetia.”
A total of nine candidates, including current so-called president Raul Khajimba, are running for so-called president.
