On May 21, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba had a meeting with the representatives of the opposition – Nodar Kakubava, Teymuraz Khishba and Sergey Shamba.
At the meeting with the representatives of the opposition, Minister of Defence Mirab Kishmaria and First Deputy Head of the Administration of the President Dmitry Shamba have also participated.
The Head of State proposed to the representatives of the opposition to consider the issue of the possible reschedule of the presidential elections for a term within the framework of the Constitution and the term of the constitutional powers of the current President – August 25, 2019.
During the meeting, Raul Khadzhimba remarked that he will support this, if the Central Election Committee will allow the registration of Aslan Bzhania as a presidential candidate in his absence. Also, the Central Election Committee which conducts the exam on the knowledge of the state language for the presidential candidates is to consider the possibility of accepting Aslan Bzhania’s exam results for 2014.
The representatives of the opposition have accepted these proposals.
