The President of Mongolia, Ts.Elbegdorj, has put a veto on Parliamentary Resolution 94. This aims to establish a primary court in every district (soum), and a court of appeal in every province (aimag), before 1st April 2016. Under this resolution, about 100 judges would need to be hired. A reason for the veto is that the considerable financial and organizational burden could represent a real risk to the normal operations of the present Mongolian court system. Implementation of these changes and securing the additional financing from the 2016 State Budget of 2016 would make the fulfillment of Resolution 94 very difficult in the short term.
The Judicial Standing Committee discussed the presidential veto on 1st December, which they accepted with a 64% vote majority. In according with legal procedure, the veto must be discussed by the Parliament in two weeks from being issued.
