We worked as observers at 10 electoral sub commissions in the capital city, aimag centers and sum (administration unit of an aimag) centers. At seven o’clock in the morning on the Election Day, a long waiting line of voters for the polling has already been formed in several places. We much appreciate for the opportunity created for us, the foreign observers
to observe and monitor the polling. We haven’t seen any irregularities and contradictions. We also talked to and heard opinions of other foreign observers and found out that they were also holding the same opinions and impressions as we did. The polling went so smoothly and drove us to a conclusion that your election went considerably fair, abiding by state laws and regulations”, said First Deputy Chairman A.Torshin.

I deem that your participation in our election is a true reflection of the importance that you attach to the relations of our two countries. Mongolia greatly signifies and pays much attention in strengthening relations and partnership with our northern neighbor. Russia stood with us when Mongolia declared its independence and during the great construction years. A new Parliament and New Government is about to be formed. The President will have specific roles in this forming. I want that the members of the new Parliament and the new Government to direct their attention in boosting bilateral relations in all aspects in traditional and new directions. I had a chance to meet with the President of the Russian Federation V.V.Putin during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization
