Most of new crop of legislators don’t come from either opposition or pro-government parties.
This month’s parliamentary election in Abkhazia brought little joy to either government or opposition, as neither did particularly well out of two rounds of voting in which turnout was low.
Of the nine serving members of parliament seeking re-election, only three won. The outgoing speaker of parliament, Nugzar Ashuba, and his deputies Irina Agrba and Sergei Matosyan were those defeated.
Only three members of the pro-government United Abkhazia party won seats, and party leader Daur Tarba was not among them.
“Certainly, many major figures from the pro-government party did not get into parliament. However, that doesn’t reflect a fall in the popularity of the president or of confidence in the government,” Spartak Jidkov, a political expert and member of the Ainar media club, said. “This can happen in a first-past-the-post system.”
