Dzhioyeva Awarded Post

A victorious presidential candidate in South Ossetia whose election win was thrown out will join the government after all.

Interfax reported that a decree issued late Wednesday by South Ossetian President Leonid Tibilov named Alla Dzhioyeva as the republic's deputy prime minister.

Her purview in that capacity will be oversight of the government's handling of social issues.

A day earlier, Dzhioyeva had been chosen to lead a new political party. Delegates at a general congress in Tsingvali voted her party chairwoman.
