The Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) has decided to nominate Ts.Lhagvasuren as the new Minister for Health and Sport. It is reported that the MPRP has talked long and hard about this appointment. Previously, the majority rejected the proposal to nominate former MPRP secretary Erdenetuya for the job.
Ts.Lhagvasuren - the current nominee, used to work as Director of the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences. Last week, Deputy Prime Minister Ts.Oyunbaatar said that the appointment of the new Minister for Health and Sport would be made during the spring session and was currently under discussion.
