The UB Post - - Politics -

Demo­cratic Party (DP) Cau­cus Chairman D.Er­denebat re­ported about the party’s stance on Par­lia­ment’s spring ses­sion on Mon­day.

D.Er­denebat stressed that the rul­ing party in Par­lia­ment did not dis­cuss the key top­ics re­gard­ing le­gal and so­cio-eco­nomic is­sues such as amend­ments to the Con­sti­tu­tion, and laws on po­lit­i­cal party, elec­tions, la­bor, and small and medium-sized en­ter­prises, as well as the in­vest­ment bank­ing bill, which were in­cluded in the spring ses­sion agen­das.

The DP cau­cus chairman noted that the rul­ing party took too much time de­bat­ing none rel­e­vant is­sues, but they re­jected a bill that aims to sta­bi­lize ex­change rate fluc­tu­a­tion and in­crease for­eign ex­change flows in Mon­go­lia, which was pro­posed by the pres­i­dent.

D.Er­denebat stated, “Although the na­tion’s econ­omy is grow­ing, the Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Party (MPP) has not made a de­ci­sion to sup­port peo­ple’s lives.”

“DP sup­ports ac­cel­er­at­ing the Ta­van Tol­goi coal megapro­ject to im­prove peo­ple’s lives and bring the coun­try sus­tain­able eco­nomic growth, and ne­go­ti­ated with Cab­i­net min­is­ters about im­prov­ing the man­age­ment and op­er­a­tions of Er­denes Mon­gol state-owned com­pany, and mak­ing some per­cent of the com­pany pub­lic. But the rul­ing party did not sup­port DP’s pro­posal for im­prov­ing Er­denes Mon­gol’s man­age­ment, which shows that the rul­ing party is mak­ing an at­tempt to own the coun­try’s strate­gic min­eral de­posits with­out mak­ing their op­er­a­tions clear to the pub­lic.”, said the DP cau­cus chairman.

He noted that DP will de­mand MPP to ful­fill its elec­tion prom­ises to im­ple­ment in­fra­struc­ture, road and rail­way projects through money raised through the IPO of Er­denes Ta­van Tol­goi.

D.Er­denebat pointed out that dur­ing dis­cus­sions for amend­ments to the Act of Par­lia­ment, the cau­cus could re­voke a part that was in vi­o­la­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion.
