Mongolian People's Party, Democratic Party and HUN Party plan to form coalition

AKIPRESS.COM - The Mongolian People's Party won 68 seats, the Democratic Party 42 seats, the HUN Party 8 seats, the National Coalition 4 seats, and the Civil Will-Green Party 4 seats in the 9th parliamentary elections in Mongolia. The issue of forming a government coalition is now under discussion.

Prime Minister Oyun-Erdeen Luvsannamsrai said he is very glad that changes to the Constitution were mostly implemented in these elections.

"We have managed to form a parliament with representatives from many parties. Representatives of social groups were able to enter parliament. If the MPP were in the majority, constitutional changes would not have brought about these changes. The MPP forms the government, it should include representatives of the DP and the HUN party. The Mongolian People's Party will make up 60% of the government members, and the remaining members will be taken from other parties," the PM noted.

However, the public voices more critical opinions regarding the coalition and the ruling Mongolian People's Party.

A former Democratic Party lawmaker who started her own party two years ago held a news conference to criticize allegedly unfair campaign tactics by the People's Party, the Associated Press reported.

Oyungerel Tsedevdamba, the founder and leader of the Civic Unity Party, accused the People's Party of using state power and access to a government database and employees to give itself an unfair advantage in the race.

"The Civic Unity Party cannot and will not congratulate the Mongolian People's Party for its victory. It's not real victory. ... It's a result of intimidation and repression," she said. The Civic Unity Party did not win any seats in the election.
