Earlier today (15 March), the State Great Khural held the opening ceremony of its spring session. It is the first spring session for the Mongolian Parliament formed following the 2020 June election. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the spring session was opened online and was attended by foreign ambassadors to the country.
Under an amendment to the Constitution of Mongolia, parliament needs to hold session of more than 75 days. Therefore, the State Great Khural opened half a month earlier than usual. Previously, spring sessions open on April 1st.
