About the election

Prime Minister Khurelsukh Ukhnaa’s Mongolian People's Party (MPP) retained the two-thirds majority in the 76-member State Great Hural, taking 61 seats (down from 65). The Democratic Party (DP) came in a distant second, taking 11 seats (up from 9). Two other coalitions took one seat each and former Prime Minister Norov Altankhuyag was elected as an independent candidate. On 2 July, the State Great Hural re-elected Mr. Khurelsukh as the Prime Minister (note 1). He promised to continue to work on the ongoing and new railway, energy and mining development projects.

The 2020 elections were the first to be held after the amendments to the electoral law in December 2019 (note 2). On 30 January 2020, the State Great Hural adopted a resolution setting parliamentary elections for 24 June. Amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, on 23 March, the President of Mongolia Khaltmaa Battulga (DP) proposed to postpone the 2020 parliamentary elections to save costs so as to continue to fight the pandemic. The Prime Minister and Cabinet responded that the situation did not yet require postponement and the elections were held on 24 June as scheduled. Before the polling, the country of 3.3 million inhabitants recorded only 215 infections and no deaths. Turnout increased to 73.65 percent (up from 73.58% in 2016).

Note 1:

Mr. Khurelsukh succeeded Mr. Jargaltulga Erdenebat (MPP) in 2017 after the latter had been ousted in a parliamentary vote. The move followed Mr. Erdenebat’s unsuccessful bid for the 2017 presidential elections.

Note 2:

On 22 December 2019, the State Great Hural adopted a law amending the electoral law. The revised electoral law reintroduced the Block Vote (the Plurality/Majority system using multi-member constituencies). It replaced the Mixed system which had been used for the 2012 and 2016 elections where 28 of the 76 members were elected under the proportional representation system.

In the 2020 elections, 29 multi-member constituencies (comprising two to three seats each) were used. The number of members elected from the capital Ulaanbaatar (where nearly half of Mongolian citizens live) was reduced from 28 to 24 in favour of rural areas which now elect 52 members.
