Mongolia’s opposing Democratic Party has postponed its congress which was scheduled for 4 April. During the congress, the party had planned to discuss the current political situation.
Previously, DP leader S.Erdene, said that the Mongolian People’s Party had tried to obtain power illegally. Firstly, the party implemented a 60 billion-worth scheme during the 2016 election when they won 65 seats in parliament. Recently, parliament has approved legal amendments which were presented by the president, which give more power to the National Security Council which he leads; this body has the authority to dismiss top legislative power holders such as prosecutor general and the senior judge.
The new date for the party congress has still to be announced.
