Spring session of the State Great Khural is to discuss the amendments to the Constitution of Mongolia. National Research team assessed the implementation of the Constitution.

In 23 years time only two cabinets have completed its period fully, while we have witnessed the cabinet of few months lifetime as well. Average lifetime for a governing power in Mongolian is 28 months, which affects negatively on government continuation and sustainable development of the country.

This is clear indication of the hole in the legistlation and there is real need to make amendments to the Constitution. This issue is to be discussed during the spring session of the State Great Khural, according to the State Formation Standing Committee head A.Bakei.

National Research team concluded that Constitution, which was adopted in 1992 and implemented for over 20 years, needs to be amended as it is no longer serves to the specifics of the current social and political developments.

In view of this conclusion, special working group on amendments to the constitution has been established with the order just before the closing of the autumn session of State Great Khural consisting of seven MPs.

Seven MPs to participate in the adoption of the renewed Constitution are

  • N.Batbayar Member of Parliament
  • L.Tsog Member of Parliament
  • S.Bayartsogt Member of Parliament
  • D.Lundeejants Member of Parliament
  • D.Demberel Member of Parliament
  • R.Gonchigdorj Member of Parliament
  • L.Bold Member of Parliament.

Working group will revise the seven amendments adopted in 2000, which have been critizised for worsening the Constitution. Moreover the main focus will be on independence of the cabinet, double deel issues and city status within the administrative unit section.
