Jioyeva Remains in Hospital, 'Condition Improved'
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Feb.'12 / 22:27

Condition of Alla Jioyeva, the opposition leader in breakaway South Ossetia, who was hospitalized after a police raid on her office on Thursday, is now better, Russian and local news agencies reported quoting Jioyeva's brother on Friday evening.

"Her condition is stable and she can talk; she receives all the required medical treatment," Konstantin Jioyev told reporters in Tskhinvali.

Doctors in Tskhinvali hospital were considering her transfer to Vladikavkaz, Russia's North Ossetian Republic, for further treatment, but Jioyeva's relatives have declined the offer.

Jioyeva, whose victory in last November's presidential runoff was annulled, was planning to inaugurate herself on February 10. Some commentators in Tbilisi suggested, that the incident in her office during which she fell ill and subsequently hospitalized is likely to lead to sidelining Jioyeva from political processes. Paata Zakareishvili, a frequent commentator on developments in Georgia's breakaway regions and a member of Georgian opposition Republican Party, says that Jioyeva's decision to inaugurate herself forced some of her key allies to distance from her, including Anatoly Barankevich and Jambolat Tedeev; after that, Zakareishvili argues, Jioyeva herself sensed she was losing ground, including losing popular support among the locals in Tskhinvali.

Meanwhile, the breakaway region's central election commission continues receiving applications from would-be presidential candidates willing to run in the March 25 repeat election. Among the would-be candidates is Dmitry Medoev, who serves as the breakaway region's ambassador in Moscow.
