On 11th March, the Chairman of the Mongolian National Democratic Party (MNDP), M.Enkhsaikhan, met with his opposite number in the Ekh Oron Party - B.Erdenebat. During the meeting, the two chairmen discussed the current situation of the economy and the run up to the election. They also exchanged their opinions about a merger which would result in the creation of the “Ekh Oron Democracy Justice” union.
In 2012, the MNDP created the “Justice Union” with the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party, and took 11 parliamentary seats; they could not, however, acheve success in parliamentary operations. In addition, several months ago, the Democratic Party invited the MNDP to co-operate in a similar manner in the forthcoming election. The Chairman of the MNDP has still not responded to this invitation. Taking into consideration last Friday’s meeting, it seems likely that the MNDP will merge with the Ekh Oron Party.
