The political groups are busy debating the appointment of a new Minister of Health and Sport, to be appointed when the spring session starts. Yesterday, during his press conference, Deputy Prime Minister Ts.Oyunbaatar mentioned this. The spring session will start on 5th April.
As will be recalled, G.Shiilegdamba - the previous Health & Sport Minister - was arrested at the end of 2015, in connection with a corruption case; he subsequently sent a letter of resignation to the Prime Minister. In accordance with agreement between the Justice Union group and the Democratic Party, the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party must nominate one of their members as Minister of Health and Sport.
