Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh was elected Chairman of the Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) on the second day of its ongoing Congress.
The attendees of the Congress had two choices – Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh and Head of the MPP Group in Parliament D.Khayankhyarvaa. The Prime Minister became the MPP’s 15th Chairman after receiving 775 votes or 63.1 percent support from the 1,309 members of the Party attending the 28th Congress.
The newly elected Chairman addressed the Congress after receiving the Chairman’s seal from his predecessor M.Enkhbold. “I have been listening to both criticism and appreciation from the Congress delegates last two days. The fate of Mongolia is inseparable from that of the MPP,” said the Chairman, acknowledging his responsibility to recover the economy. “I will highly cherish and protect the Party’s unity” he said.
The Congress continues today with the election of members of the MPP Conference, Steering Committee and Supervisory Council.
