The Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) has proposed that its Chairman, former Mongolian President N.Enkhbayar, be appointed as Deputy Prime Minister. Consequently, the Government sent an official letter to the Anti-Corruption Executive Agency (ACEA), requesting that they study whether it is technically possible for Mr Enkhbayar to be appointed as Deputy Prime Minister.
Under Provision 23.6 of the “Law on Arranging Public and Private Interests and Preventing Conflict of Interests”, the ACEA must release a report on any person, who is to be appointed to a senior political post; the report, which must be released within 10 days, should state whether there is a conflict of interests.
Accordingly, the ACEA submitted their findings to the Government on Tuesday 16th February. The conclusion of the investigation on Mr Enkhbayer is that a conflict of interests exists.
