The Mongolian parliamentary opposition has announced, that it will organise a demonstration on Sukhbaatar square, in central Ulaanbaatar on 5 April. The Democratic Party’s public protest will be held the same day as the spring session of parliament opens.
The Democratic Party will demonstrate against the Mongolian Government on the following grounds: firstly, demanding that all MPs who illegally received soft loans from the Fund for Small and Medium Enterprises be charged, secondly, to remind the ruling party of its broken election promises and, thirdly, to protest against Mongolia joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
During a press conference organised by some party members, DP General Secretary Ts.Tuvaan, said, the ruling Mongolian People’s Party has been struggling over power and cabinet positions since 2016. Furthermore, he said that the fact that some MPs received soft loans from SME is nothing short of organised crime.
