Ch.Saikhanbileg delivers official demand to dismiss MPP ministers


Prime Minister of Mongolia Ch.Saikhanbileg and Head of the Governmental Office S.Bayartsogt submitted a draft law to Parliament on Saturday to discharge ministers of the Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) from the Cabinet.
The draft is being discussed today during an irregular parliamentary meeting.
Earlier in July, the executive council of the ruling Democratic Party (DP) made a statement calling for the expulsion of representatives of the MPP from the Cabinet. In regards to the statement, the executive council of the MPP held a meeting, followed by a press conference, where MPP faction Chairman M.Enkhbold announced that the party faction is ready to leave the Cabinet.
The DP claims that the MPP has cut more than 600 employees from ministries and government agencies and have been criticizing the government with an eye on elections next year. The DP blames the MPP for spending some 60 percent of its time in plenary meetings demanding the dismissal of the previous government’s Cabinet members, hindering progress. The DP says another reason for the MPP’s expulsion is that the MPP has already announced its agenda for the 2016 election campaign, and has begun to hinder state affairs and divide the people. The Prime Minister is the one to make the final decision whether or not to fire the MPP’s ministers from his Cabinet.
The Prime Minister has also sent the President a request to discuss discharging the MPP ministers from the Cabinet. His official request letter states, “The Executive Council of the DP and DP faction in the Parliament made the decision to cancel the mutual trust and cooperation agreement signed between the DP and MPP on December 9, 2014, determining that performance of the agreement is not sufficient. Hereby, I am delivering a request to discuss the issue of dismissing members of the Cabinet of Mongolia and members of the MPP, including Deputy Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh; Minister of Nature, Environment, Green Development and Tourism D.Oyunkhorol; Finance Minister J.Erdenebat; Minister of Construction and Urban Development D.Tsogtbaatar; Minister of Roads and Transportation N.Tumurkhuu; and Labor Minister S.Chinzorig from their duties, in accordance with the Law on Government’s article 23.”
