The press-service of President of Abkhazia: there are no legal grounds for early termination of powers of President
Comment of the press service of President of Abkhazia.

Sukhum. 6 September. Apsnypress. The comments of the press service of President say:
  
 "On September 5 of this year there was held a press conference by head of staff of the National Movement for Protection of Statehood of Abkhazia."
 
 We welcome that it was stated that the headquarters will act strictly within the framework of the basic law - the Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia. However, one of the main "wishes" of the members of movement is the voluntary and early resignation of President. Also at the press conference, was voiced an opinion about the need to guarantee the non-advancement of President at the upcoming presidential elections in 2019 for a second term.
   
 We consider this statement of the question to be unjustified and unreasonable. In accordance with the Constitution, President can be removed from office in cases of violation of his oath, the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Abkhazia. At the same time, such a decision is adopted by the Parliament on the basis of the Constitutional Court's decision by a two-thirds majority. As we see, there are no legal grounds for early termination of the powers of President.
   
 Regarding the question whether President will run for a second term, we consider it premature. The head of state said that he will accept the final decision and notify the public not earlier than the deadline established by the Constitution and the legislation of the Republic of Abkhazia.
  
 At the same time, we draw attention to the fact that only the Constitution and electoral legislation determine the criteria for who can run and who does not.
  
 We would like to note that such statements will not lead to achievement of the goal to unite the people of Abkhazia, which the newly established movement claims. "
