Mongolian delegacies observe Australian election

By E.DARI

A Mongolian delegation headed by the Secretary General of the General Electoral Commission, B.Altanjargal, observed the Australian 2013 Parliamentary Election for the first time, representing Mongolia.

Australian Parliament consists of two chambers, including the House of Representatives with 150 members and the Senate with 40 senators. A general parliamentary election was carried out in 2013 to choose 150 members of the House of the Representatives and 40 senators. A general election for the House of Representatives and half of the Senate was held on September 7.

During their visit to Australia, Mongolian delegates became acquainted with the Australian election system and the operations of the Australian Electoral Commission, and held a meeting with its chairman and board members of the Australian Electoral Commission’s council.

Our observers visited three electoral stations and observed the manual counting of ballot papers.

The voting began at 8 a.m. and ended at 6 p.m. in Australia and the preliminary election results were announced three hours after the end of voting, even though ballot papers were counted manually.
