By the law, president has to take an oath before the parliament members. However, this year, parliament made the necessary changes in the law allowing president to inaugurate in public. The ceremony will take place just before the Naadam day, on 10th of July, in front of the Chinggis Khaan statue located in the parliament building.
Ceremony will include military parade and entertainment programs coinciding with Naadam. President’s adviser stated that it will attract tourists and will be a good gesture for the rest of the world.
The Western-style public inauguration is the first to happen in democratic Mongolia. Elbegdorj Tsakhia will serve the second-term in presidency.
