Individual observers at the 2019 parliamentary elections in the unrecognised Republic of South Ossetia

On 9 June 2019, the so-called Republic of South Ossetia, located within the internationally recognised borders of Georgia, held “parliamentary elections”. The overwhelming majority of the world’s nations does not recognise the sovereignty of the Republic of South Ossetia, while international institutions such as the OSCE ODIHR considered “elections” there as illegitimate and did not send international election observers there.
