The three  presidential candidates from Mongolian People’s Party, Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party and Democratic party is confirmed and received their mandate from the General Election Committee. The candidates are MPP – Bat-Erdene B., MPRP – Udval Ch., DP – Elbegdorj Ts – current president.

Green Party is supporting MPP candidate Bat-Erdene B. due to his views on environmental issues. Civil Will – Green Party is supporting DP candidate Elbegdorj Ts.

The MPRP and MPP had same supporters before it was divided by Enkhbayar Nambar – a political heavyweight, former president, prime minister and speaker – currently in a prison for corruption charges. However, he is serving his time in 2nd Clinical Center in Ulaanbaatar due to his health complications.

It is believed by the political analysts that the vote for the DP’s competitor will be divided between MPP and MPRP making the odds high for these parties. DP has won the majority seat in the parliament last year forming a coalition cabinet with Justice Coalition – MPRP and MNDP (Mongolian National Democratic Party).
