President of the Republic of Abkhazia




On September 10, a briefing of President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba has taken place.

The President greeted the journalists.

“We will continue the work that we started”, - remarked Raul Khadzhimba.

The Head of State was asked a question about whether Alkhas Kvitsinia aims to appeal against the results of the presidential elections.

“It is his right. I know that before the start of the second round of the elections, his supporters said that the voting option “against everyone” is, in fact, a vote in support of the current government. The court will decide. I am surprised to hear that there was some “gentleman's agreement”. I did not sign or discuss any agreements. There is the law, the article on re-voting, and the Central Election Committee worked in accordance with it. We have only confirmed the provisions of this law and issued our statements accordingly, both the Kvitsinia and Khadzhimba election headquarters. We did not invent anything new. Only later, some individuals decided to turn this situation to their advantage”, - said Raul Khadzhimba.

The President was also asked a question about the primary tasks as Head of State.

“We are going through a difficult process. We are surrounded by events, caused by the fact that both Georgia and its supporters work quite actively to influence not only Abkhazia but also South Ossetia. On the whole, peace between us remains quite fragile. The main aim of our state is providing security. We have discussed issues of our defence capability with the President of Russia. Economic development and social issues are our own internal affairs, which we should solve together”, - said the President.
