According to order which was issued by parliament speaker D.Lundeejantsan on 21-st January, joint working group of parliament and government was established to work out useful minerals law and investment contract draft. Working group that consists of eleven members (including Members of Mongolian Revolutionary Party and Democratic Party, Prime Minister S.Bayar and Industry & Trade Minister Kh.Narankhuu) were planning to summarize their opinions and hand to parliament in the mid of February to hold the session.
But they couldn’t succeed in time. Tried to organize meeting in the middle of last week, but didn’t come enough number of members. Working group member T.Ochirkhuu, who is working in his district, said that “we reached agreement on principles. MP were planning to hand the draft to Parliament on 5-th or 6-th March, but couldn’t do timely. Hope that we have chance to hand the draft to parliament in 10-th March.” We reached him by cell phone. It’s most likely that other members are also in their districts. L.Purevdorj, G.Zandanshatar, Z.Enkhbold and Ts.Damiran are in their aimags. Working group leader N.Batbayar will go to his district on tomorrow. So it’s not clear that when will happen the special session. S.Lambaa, Deputy Chairman of Democratic Party Council said that there is no time possibility for it. He thinks that they could discuss the Useful Minerals Law in the first 15 days of regular session which will start in 5-th of next month. Then B.Erdenesuren, deputy head of Revolutionary party group said that special session could be announced probably in 17-th of this month.
