Mongolian Prime Minister Erdenebat greets Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Ulan Bator

Mongolia’s June elections and their impact

  • Constitutional majority may allow new government to weaken presidency
  • Social spending pledges may be hard to keep with debt squeeze
  • Chinese trade deal and preserving Russian economic ties are top foreign policy goals

The June 29 parliamentary election was a landslide win for the opposition Mongolian People’s Party (MPP), which captured 65 of the 76 seats in the unicameral legislature after the abolition of proportional representation earlier this year. The election is likely to have far-reaching consequences in three areas: constitutional reform, management of the slowing economy and relations with China, Russia and other world powers.

The elections dealt a crushing blow to the governing Democratic Party (DP) and almost obliterated other groupings. The DP’s representation in parliament dropped from 35 to only nine seats, even though it won a respectable 33 percent of the popular vote.
