The director of the Democratic Party (DP) Group, Sh.Tuvdendorj has provided information about a meeting of the group which took place on 14th December. During the meeting, Speaker Z.Enkhbold and Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg made speeches. The following issues were discussed:
The Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) has demanded that election votes be counted both manually and automatically; this would involve changing the “General Electoral Law”. The DP Group has discussed and considered this matter and concluded that the demand of the MPP is not acceptable.
Mr Sh.Tuvdendorj also answered some questions.
-During the DP Group meeting, was the issue of the Deputy Prime Minister discussed? What was the reaction of the members to this issue?
- The appointment of the Deputy Prime Minister is the sole responsibility of the Prime Minister. The DP Group did not discuss this issue. Prime Minister must decide who to appoint on his own.
-The commercial banks have stopped providing mortgage loans, following the decision of the “Constitutional Court”. The DP Group and Justice Union Group have announced that they will initiate a draft law project related to mortgages. When will the law project be presented to Parliament? Will this new law be able to solve the mortgage problem?
-There is no point saying anything about the decision of the Constitutional Court’s. We are currently exploring options within the framework of the constitution. The working team, headed by the Director of the Judicial Standing Committee, D.Ganbat is preparing the draft legislation.
The Constitutional Court has the complete authority to make a decision within the framework of the constitution. The Democratic Party will work on the draft law, in a way that does not to damage the interest of people’s wishing to obtain apartments. The decision of the Constitutional Court demonstrates that the constitutional change is required immediately.
