As we reported last week, the issue as to who should be chairman of the National Labor Party (NLP) – S.Ganbaatar or G.Naidalaa – has gone to the Supreme Court
Previously, S.Ganbaatar has declared: “Traitors in our party have illegally chosen G.Naidalaa as the Chairman. Therefore, we must solve this issue in accordance with the rules of our party. The 40 members of the NLP Central Committee have dismissed G.Naidalaa from his seat. Therefore, we will take the matter to the Supreme Court”.
At the same time, G.Naidalaa did exactly the same and took S.Ganbaatar to the Supreme Court, on the grounds that he had been illegally appointed.
On Friday 18th, the Supreme Court studied G.Naidalaa’s request, which proposed that he should be appointed as NLP Chairman. The count hearing concluded that the proposal to appoint two people simultaneously for the post of party chairman contradicts the Law on Political Parties. Therefore, the Supreme Court rejected both Naidalaa’s and Ganbaatar’s claims for the post. As a result, former NLP Chairman S.Borgil remains in his seat.
