The Centenary of the Mongolian Revolution of 1921 will be marked next year. In addition, the ruling Mongolian People’s Party will also mark 100 years since it was established by Damdin Sukhbaatar as the Marxist-Leninist “Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party”. Now the firmly social democrat party intends to celebrate its founding with an expensive celebration.
According to Deputy Speaker Ya.Sodbaatar, Mongolian Government has budgeted MNT 10 billion for celebrating the 100 years of MPP in 2021. To put this in perspective: organizing the Naadam Festival normally costs MNT 3 billion every year. However, the budget for the traditional festival will be increased in 2021.
