On July 27, 2012, the newly elected Head of the Mongolian People's Party (MPP) U.Enkhtuvshin
and Minister for Justice and Home Affairs, Member of the Parliament Ts.Nyamdorj held a 40-minute talk with the Speaker of the State Great Khural (Parliament) Z.Enkhbold
The parties have exchanged thoughts on resolving the current issues that have commenced regarding the First Parliament Session. After the meeting, Member of the Parliament, Head of MPP U.Enkhtuvshin gave brief answers to the questions of reporters.
On what issues did you exchange thoughts with the Speaker of the Parliament?
On the part of the MPP, we will not hinder with state operations. We have numerously expressed our position to run all operations in the frames of law. The First Parliament Session was held illegitimately, where the Speaker of the Parliament was elected
. Two articles were violated. The first article sounds that negotiation is held, where one part raises an issue through a written state, whereas the other part is to also give a written answer. The second article sounds, the current eldest member of the Parliament is to chair the First Session. However, these articles were violated, where the Session was chaired by Parliament Member L.Tsog, although D.Demberel was present in the Government House. These types of violation will complicate further Parliament procedures. In other words, there will be no mutual understandings. We put this issue during this meeting. We are ready to enter the Parliament session. The main matter is our position to run all procedures in the frames of law.
What is the MPP position on the two candidates in Uvurkhangai aimag?
Within the talks, we have discussed to accelerate the court procedure of our two candidates in Uvurkhangai aimag
and their oath taking process. We asked to pay exclusive attention to this matter after he will be officially appointed as the Speaker of the Parliament. We also requested to make a manual count of the votes of Arkhangai, Uvurkhagai, Khentii aimags and Sukhbaatar and Chingeltei District of Ulaanbaatar city. We have agreed to hand count the votes of the above aimags
and districts, and we have negotiated to establish work groups from the two sides in order to resolve these issues.
Regarding the fact of electing the Speaker of the Parliament, the MPP addressed the Constitutional Court. Does it make sense that the MPP members will not participate in the Parliament session until the decision is released from the Constitutional Court of Mongolia?
Work groups are to be established from the two sides. If we can come to an agreement, we do not have to wait for the decision of the Constitutional Court
Will the Speaker of the Parliament be elected again?
It is in discussion. At today’s meeting, we exchanged opinions, if we could come to a consensus and resolve the matter. In any case, we have negotiated to establish a work group on the controversial issues.
