The Minerals Minister Zorigt Dashdorj likely to run for by-election for his party

MPRP Ruling Council has nominated Zorigt Dashdorj, Minister of Minerals for the election this afternoon. Zorigt, the young Sinologist and elder brother of a promising government official slain by a disruntled owner of a bankrupt Savings and Credit Cooperative in 2007 started his political career from tough task of negotiating with international miners.
In constituency no.24, where President Elbegdorj elected last year, political battle for the parliamentary seat is going to be not easy. Democratic Party's district council nominated Burmaa, a woman who is seen as representative of Mongolian civic society institutions.
Both candidates have to be confirmed by the each party's congresses.Former President Enkhbayar Nambar is supported by MPRP veteran members for the nomination. However,it is likely that in a largely blue (pro-Democratic) election district, MPRP would prefer younger, career driven young official over used gun like former President Enkhbayar. In the eyes of some MPRP members, Zorigt is seen largely as inexperienced and "green". For former President Enkhbayar, it is going to be a fight for his survival in Mongolian political life. If he can't secure his party's nomination, it is likely the end for his political career.
By tonight, it will be clear who won the nomination of both parties. The election is scheduled on Oct 18, 2009. Outcome of the election is not significant enough to shift political power balance in the parliament. MPRP is going to be still dominant party in the Parliament.
