MPP CON­FER­ENCE TO TAKE PLACE ON SEP­TEM­BER 25

The UB Post - - POLITICS - By T.BAYARBAT

The board of the Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Party (MPP) met on Wed­nes­day to de­ter­mine the date of the party’s next con­fer­ence.

A to­tal of 30 out of 33 board mem­bers at­tended the meet­ing and unan­i­mously agreed to host the party’s con­fer­ence on Sep­tem­ber 25, which will de­bate the ap­point­ment of the next Prime Min­is­ter.

Un­der the Law on Gov­ern­ment, Par­lia­ment must form a new Cab­i­net be­fore Oc­to­ber 8, and as Oc­to­ber 6 is a Fri­day, MPs be­lieve that the fi­nal date to set up the next Cab­i­net will be Oc­to­ber 6.

Sec­re­tary of MPP Ts.Bat-Enkh noted that as the party’s con­sti­tu­tion states that if the party holds the ma­jor­ity in Par­lia­ment, the party chair­man will au­to­mat­i­cally be­come the Prime Min­is­ter. The board meet­ing’s at­ten­dees unan­i­mously agreed to abide by this rule.

Ts.Bat-Enkh added that the party must elect a new party chair­man be­fore Par­lia­ment’s fall ses­sion, which will open on Oc­to­ber 2, to nom­i­nate a can­di­date for the of­fice of Prime Min­is­ter to Par­lia­ment in the fall ses­sion.
