MPs Kh.Nyambaatar, L.Oyun-Erdene, T.Ayursaikhan, L.Bold and J.Batzandan held a press conference earlier today (25 December) announcing that they will demonstrate on Sukhbaatar square every Thursdays until Speaker M.Enkhbold steps down.
The MPs have presented a petition signed by 38 lawmakers to Speaker M.Enkhbold demanding he resigns from his post. The MPs are accusing him of conflicts of interests, partisanship and not-carrying out discussions in parliament on several issues which they had presented.
Speaker M.Enkhbold has said, it is not first time that lawmakers have demanded that he steps down. However, among those who have previously demanded that the controversial speaker should go are, Kh.Battulga, President of Mongolia and Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh, also the leader of Mongolian People’s Party. The petition is now to be discussed by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on State Structure.
