Q: Political parties are talking about their election promises. Is it possible to make it happen?
MP D.Enkhbat: I am with MP Oyun, Altai, we are all against it from the very beginning. Mongolia has chosen democracy and market economy for over 20 years. As for me, if this law is adopted, we need to make historical choice of which to call justice. I think that it is fairy tale to get money during the term of this parliament.
MP D.Enkhbat: Is it fair to give everyone same amount of money or to give them in accordance with their labour and contribution? It looks like a draft law but formulates development of Mongolia in next 20 years. Only communists distribute money or benefit evenly. During that time everyone has salary of 600 MNT. But now, we make money according to our skills and labour. Government or state has duty to create workplaces and provide healthy environment to work and to be treated fairly.
It is not that important to give money evenly. But I should mention here one example from others, if people get free money, they become drunkards. Native Americans and Manchus all received free money and now disappeared. We will now pursue this path. Even people are poor, we can’t decide the issue through money distribution. Therefore, it is very simple for us. Instead of delivering money, we should develop policy to create more workplaces and to provide opportunity to everybody that they can make 1 million themselves.
Q: So you think that it is not necessary to distribute 1.5 million MNT?
MP D.Enkhbat: Nobody can get 1.5 million MNT. It is just like mocking people to lick them candy inside a window display.
