Former president and PM Nambar Enkhbayar has been elected chairman of a new political party created last week. The party was formed after two-day conference and it was named “Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party”, a name the MPP gave up at the end of last year. Enkhbayar won the chairman election with 687 votes out of 913. Enkhbayar said that he was against the name change of the MPRP to MPP from the very beginning and that he will fight for justice as a party chairman.
According to the new MPRP the MPP and Dem Party are driving the country into an epic fog and MPRP’s plan is to bring new democracy.
It is not clear whether the court will register the new party as “Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party.” The Mongolian People’s Party has said the use of its old name by the group was illegal. According to the Supreme Court of Mongolia, which registers political parties, there are currently 17 political parties registered in the country.
