On June 07, the Secretary General of the Democratic Party (DP) D.Erdenebat delivered an appeal to the Government of Mongolia on participating in the elections under the norms of law and order.
The appeal said:
“As cited in the Mongolian State Budget 2012 Legislation, the assets of the state funded “Sum Development Fund” and “Fund for providing livestock” are to be allotted to herders and citizens with imminent necessity at an alleviated condition of a full pay-back according to regulations of the law. However, information is coming from the rural areas to our party that the Governors appointed from the Mongolian People’s Party (for instance, in 17 Sums of Uvurkhangai
aimag) are deviating the purpose and content of these state budget funded projects and are providing loans and promises to citizens in a one-sided, discriminative nature. In this significant time when the election campaigns
have started, the MPP has evidently used the operation of legitimately allotting alleviated loans to citizens in order to attract the votes of citizen to the MPP, and are in potential of serious breaching of the 35.18.3 and 35.18.17 subjects of the 25th article of the Legislation on State Great Khural (Parliament) Elections, which are “Running activities and service of an investment nature using state property funds”, and “Propagating the promise of allotting state budget funds among the voters in oral and different forms”.
Thus, we appeal to halt this potential act of breaching the relevant legislation on running activities and service using state property, and to participate in the upcoming Elections by complying with the Legislation on Parliamentary Elections and adhering to justice. We hope the Government will attentively address our appeal and stop your illegal activities. If you fail to take measures on immediately halting this act that breaches the associate subjects of the Legislation on Parliamentary Elections, we would file a complaint to the General Election Commission of Mongolia on holding charges cited in the 35.35 subject of the 35th article, Legislation on Parliamentary Elections
