Speaker of Par­lia­ment M.Enkhbold held a press con­fer­ence on De­cem­ber 20 at the State Palace.

At the begin­ning of press con­fer­ence, he noted that the 28th con­fer­ence of the Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Party took place in a closed man­ner, but speeches of some peo­ple crit­i­ciz­ing him spread on so­cial me­dia, while his re­sponses to their speeches were not re­leased. M.Enkhbold said, “Dur­ing the con­fer­ence, Min­is­ter of Jus­tice Ts.Nyam­dorj blamed me for en­gag­ing in a plot of a group to gain con­trol of the Er­denet mine by buy­ing Mon­go­lian Cop­per Cor­po­ra­tion’s 49 per­cent hold­ing for 400 mil­lion USD. That is crazy. That is wrong. At the con­fer­ence, Ts.Nyam­dorj de­liv­ered strong mes­sages to the con­fer­ence’s at­ten­dees to un­der­mine my rep­u­ta­tion, so I will sue him for defama­tion in court.”

“When I met with Prime Min­is­ter U.Khurel­sukh, he of­fered to give up his job if I re­signed, but I replied to him that I will not leave of­fice if I did not make an ac­tion in vi­o­la­tion of the law,” said M.Enkhbold.
