Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The veto on proposed changes to the judicial system was discussed and accepted by the State Great Khural (parliament) at the afternoon plenary meeting December 2.

The President considered that these changes do not have sufficient financial background and are likely to create different standards in settling similar problems. The resolution outlines that the Supreme Court comprises the aimag and capital courts, the soum and inter-soum courts, as well as the district courts; and that courts can be formed for carrying out criminal, civil and administrative judicial proceedings. However, the failure to reflect the increased expenditure on these proceedings, including salaries of judges, in the State Budget for 2016 and the current economic difficulties are preventing a smooth implementation of this resolution. The difficulties might also cause problems in normal operations of exercising jurisdiction, considered Ts.Elbegdorj.

This veto was issued on November 26.
