Mongolia’s Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh removed two ministers from his cabinet just after he himself narrowly survived a parliamentary attempt to sack him. On Friday, 54.8 percent of MP’s refused to dissolve cabinet in the vote which came after 27 members signed a petition for dissolving cabinet.
Ya.Sodbaatar, the Minister of Road and Transportation Development presented his resignation letter to the PM over the ongoing scandal of Small and Medium Enterprises Fund. The letter was accepted and now will be presented to the President Battulga.
Separate from this, the Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh decided to sack Ts.Tsogzolmaa, Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Sports from her job over irresponsible behaviour including direct criticism of her boss.
Previously, Minister of Food, Agriculture and Light Industries, who was responsible for spending SME funding, was removed from his job.
