Even though, the non-regular meeting of Parliament was scheduled for 14.00 pm yesterday, the meeting had to be postponed again. This was because only 37 MP’s turned up, in other words, less than 50% of the required turnout. Those who came were: 34 members of the Democratic Party Group, 2 members of the Mongolian National Democratic Party and 1 member of the Civil Will Green Party.
As before, no members of the Mongolian People’s Party or the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party came to the meeting. In order to convene a non-regular meeting, at least 39 MPs must attend.
Therefore, Parliamentary Speaker Z.Enkhbold announced to re-call the non-regular meeting today at 09.00 pm. But by 11.00 am, the meeting had still not opened, for same reason. This frustrating situation changed when two members of the Justice Union Group, namely Z.Baynselenge and D.Terbishdagva arrived. This meant that the 39 member quorum (50%) had been met and the meeting could commence. The meeting has gone ahead without the MPP, who are boycotting it.
