O.Magnai resigns in opposition to reshuffled Cabinet structure


Director of the Agency for Fair Competition and Consumer Protection (AFCCP) O.Magnai announced his resignation on Monday following his objection to work for a government without an opposition party.
He reported that the new government has been formed without any opposition party, which he believes is “totally against the principles of democracy”.
“There must be an opposition party within the government which monitors the government’s work. The AFCCP operates under a direct administration of the Prime Minister. I can’t work with Deputy Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh as it doesn’t match the AFCCP’s ethics and principles,” O.Magnai cited as his reason for resigning.
When journalists asked what he will do now that he has resigned from his position, he said, “The Mongolian state needs cleaning and that is what I’m going to do.”
O.Magnai worked as the director of the AFCCP for over two years. He conducted 1,100 inspections, in response to approximately 6,000 public complaints received by the AFCCP.
Illegal commercial advertisement of alcoholic beverages was halted, while petrol price was kept stable without radical raise as a result of the inspections according to O.Magnai.
The AFCCP inspections covered a wide range of local industries and revealed concerning results from almost every inspection, including food safety of supermarkets and aviation catering, charging systems of mobile phone operators, and university tuition fee raises.
