The UB Post - - POLITICS - By T.BAYARBAT

On September 4, the Demo­cratic Party’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the Ci­ti­zen’s Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil of Bayanzurkh District held a press con­fer­ence on the Ulaan­baatar mayor’s ini­tia­tive to di­vide the district into two dis­tricts. They noted that Mayor of Ulaan­baatar S.Bat­bold made an ini­tia­tive to di­vide the district into two dis­tricts and a work­ing group is study­ing this mat­ter, but ac­cord­ing to the Law on Ad­min­is­tra­tive and Ter­ri­tory Unit, the district’s res­i­dents and its ci­ti­zen’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive coun­cil should make the de­ci­sion to split the district.

The rep­re­sen­ta­tives pointed out that in­stead of split­ting the district, there are a num­ber of chal­leng­ing is­sues pend­ing res­o­lu­tion in the district.

The Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Party and Demo­cratic Party in the district’s ci­ti­zen’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive coun­cil have been fight­ing for the lead­er­ship of the district’s gov­ern­ment of­fice to this day since the coun­cil was elected in Oc­to­ber 2016.

The par­ties have filed law­suits against each other for seats in the coun­cil. The Demo­cratic Party rep­re­sen­ta­tives be­lieve that the mayor’s plan to split the district is par­tially meant to re­solve the dis­pute be­tween the two par­ties.
