Former Mongolian president named chairman of new party

ULAN BATOR, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Enkhbayar Nambar, the former president and prime minister of Mongolia, has been elected chairman of a new political party created on Friday.

At the end of a two-day conference, the new party was formed and was called "Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party," a name the ruling Mongolian People's Party gave up in November.

The conference also chose the party chairman from three candidates nominated by conference participants. Enkhbayar won with 687 out of 913 votes.

"I was never for the name change of the party and therefore, leadership of the Mongolian People's Party is attacking me," Enkhbayar said, "I will fight for justice as the party chairman."

According to the Supreme Court of Mongolia, which registers political parties, there are currently 17 political parties registered in the country. It is not clear whether the court will register the new party as "Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party."

The Mongolian People's Party has said the use of its old name by the group was illegal.
