The non-regular session was scheduled to start today at 09.00 am, but has still not started. The latest information is that Government has informed Parliament, that it plans to postpone the law projects – “Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and the Safety of Radioactive Management” and other related projects until a later date.
The main purpose of today’s non-regular Parliamentary session was to discuss and solve these law projects, which would bring Mongolia in line with various conventions of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
According to an official source, however, an unexpected situation might arise, which would cancel the non-regular session. There is a rumor that the Government’s position is that: “Firstly, we need to make people (i.e. the lawmakers) properly aware of the issues; only then, should we present the draft laws to Parliament again”.
Currently, the Democratic Party Group is meeting. The DP members, including Parliamentary Speaker Z.Enkhbold and Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg are attending the group meeting. The meeting will decide whether to postpone projects or not.
