Prime Minister chats with citizens through social network


Many proposals and requests regarding health, quality of life, and development projects such as to build of jogging and cycling trails, to decrease the rent of sports halls, to develop entertainment places for the youth, and to award the best alcohol-free city district and street were heard on the “New Morning Ideas” online interview with the Prime Minister of Mongolia, N.Altankhuyag. Premier N.Altankhuyag has decided to start listening to citizen’s voices and new ideas every Friday morning. The third morning interview with N.Altankhuyag was conducted last Friday from 8 to 10 am and around five thousand people opened the www.zasag.mn website and watched the Prime Minister’s live interview.

Around six hundred people from Ulaanbaatar as well as Khuvsgul, Khovd, Uvs, Orkhon, Uvurkhangai, and Zavkhan provinces got connected to witness the online interview. They also made their proposals and requests heard through Facebook, Twitter, email, and Yahoo Messenger. Majority of the requests made and issues raised were about building satellite city of Ulaanbaatar, the sanitation of public toilets, the lack of organization to protect citizens’ rights, decreasing the number of night clubs and the sale of alcoholic beverages, and the lack of traffic signs in local roads.

Feedback was also expressed such as it is a right decision to develop the provincial centers to halt the massive migration to Ulaanbaatar, to take certain measures against state officials who embezzled money by abusing their positions, and to wish goodwill to N.Altankhuyag and the Government of Innovation and Reform. The Prime Minister then responded to the questions and inquiries from the citizens and gave detailed information about the government’s current projects and the implementations to be made starting this spring.

This online interview was aired via Mongolian National Broadcaster Television and FM radio stations, reaching live to local and provincial residents.
