On December 1st, the draft “Law on Political Parties”, which was initiated and presented to Parliament by President Ts.Elbegdorj was discussed at the “Civil Hall”. The law project includes changes such as making political parties into parties with policy. For example:
-Political party must have a policy illustrating institute.
-Political party must have a human resource preparation center
-Political party must have a structure, which can implement the action plan via the polity
Also, if parties accept financial gifts from the members for a candidate, these gifts will be counted as state property, and state financing for the parties will be subsequently reduced.
Conditions for terminating the existence of political parties:
- If the party acts in an anti-constitutional manner
- If the party does not participate in an election (at any level) for 6 years
- If the party repeatedly and deliberately submit false financial reports.
The new political can be established, if it has at least 31 members; to participate in an election it must have at least 3001 members.
