Speaker D.Demberel stated his “strong” support for renegotiating the Oyutolgoi development agreement.

In his speech, D.Demberel also outlined the agenda for the autumn session. It include
s a draft law on the election, amendments to the constitution, the 2012 draft budget, and a package of laws dealing with judicial matters and property rights.
