On Monday, Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg sent a request letter to each political party with seats in Parliament to form a coalition government.
The letter cites that in order to bring about a quick economic recovery, Prime Minister Saikhanbileg pledges to take immediate steps and renew electoral rules at all levels by amending the Constitution to strengthen parliamentary governance.
Saikhanbileg calls for the successful implementation of major projects like Oyu Tolgoi, Tavan Tolgoi, and other projects in the mining, energy and infrastructure sectors by creating a friendly investment environment to attract the interest of local and foreign companies.
The following day, the Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) responded to the letter, stating that the issue of forming a coalition government with the ruling Democratic Party (DP) should be considered at the MPP Board of Members meeting and then submitted to the Lower Chamber of the MPP.
The MPP created a working group with six members including U.Enkhtuvshin, N.Nomtoibayar, Yo.Otgonbayar,Ya.Sodbaatar, and J.Enkhbayar, chaired by S.Batbold.
If the MPP resolves to join the coalition government, these members would represent the MPP and jointly make decisions with the DP and other parties.
