The general election in Mongolia took place on 28 June. InfoMongolia is reporting that the following deputies took the parliamentary oath at the first session of the State Great Khural:
- Democratic Party – 31 seats
- Mongolian People’s Party – 25 seats
- Justice Coalition – 8 seats
- Independents – 3 seats
- Civil Will/Green Party – 2 seats
Seven seats have still to be decided.
The negotiations to form a government seem to have reached agreement. There will be a coalition between the Democratic Party, the Justice Coalition and the Civil Will/Green Party. It is also possible that one of more of the Independent deputies may join the coalition.
InfoMongolia is reporting that the Democratic Party and the Civil Will/Green Party will have 75% of the ministries and the Justice Coalition will have 25%.
The president is also from the Democratic Party. So, there is no chance of cohabitation. There is a very nice article on the Democratic Party and its various factions at Mongolia Today.
