MPP unhappy with the PM’s proposal on government structure

MPP voices objection to proposals on government structure


Working groups of the political parties with seats in Parliament have been discussing the government’s structure, but are failing to reach a consensus because of the Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) rejection of the Prime Minister’s proposals.
The Prime Minister stated that Democratic Party (DP) members will hold the positions of Prime Minister, Head of the Cabinet Secretariat, and will lead six ministries, while the position of First Deputy Prime Minister and four ministries will be held by MPP members. The Ministry of Environment will be led by the Civil Will Green Party (CWGP). The role of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health will belong to the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) and the Ministry of Mining will be led by the Mongolian National Democratic Party (MNDP).
An unofficial source reported that the MPP demanded that the number of ministers from the MPRP be reduced by one seat or that the CWGP party from the cabinet’s structure. The MPP suggested separating the Ministry of Roads and Transportation and the Ministry of Construction and Urban Development, and to unify the Ministry of Population Development and Social Welfare and the Ministry of Labor. The party also objected to creating the position of First Deputy Prime Minister, and said that the position of Deputy Prime Minister should be given to the MPP.
The draft on governmental structure suggests that the ministries of foreign affairs, sport and culture, agriculture, and labor will belong to the MPP.
