Political parties active before election

Preceding the 2012 parliamentary election, political parties have been visibly active. The Power holding party MPRP, held its Congress in early November of 2010, changing its name into Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) and amending the party flag, rules, ideology and platform. It also conducted an intensive campaign throughout the nation to give a new certificate of membership. 
However, MP Ts. Shinebayar who was elected from the MPRP and some MPRP members protested the  change of the party’s name. Later in January, they called an Extraordinary Congress of the MPRP, at which former President N. Enkhbayar was elected a chairman, MP Ts. Shinebayar as deputy chairman, and N. Udval as Secretary General of the MPRP. The party’s name has not yet been registered with the Supreme Court and its authorities explain that there is full legal ground to reinstate the MPRP’s name. 
On the  contrary, MPP’s authority claims that it is illegal to use this name. MPP chairman S. Batbold, Secretary General U. Khurelsukh, Secretary Ya. Sodbaatar, and chief of MPP Group in Parliament, D. Lundeejantsan gave a press conference on February 9 in connection with concluding the campaign for the  new membership certificate. During the press conference, MPP S. Batbold said, “While registering MPP at the Supreme Court, it was clearly asserted that MPP is a legal start and continuation of MPRP.” In addition, he asserted some clauses of the Law on Political Parties. For example, the whole and abbreviation of the  political party’s name is forbidden to be the  same as the name of an organization,company or other parties. 
 If the party has been reorganized or changed its name under the law, the party’s property, name, membership, stamp, symbol and flag are forbidden to be continuously used by a member of the party and other individuals who do not agree with the decision. He said that it doesn’t matter who, the law must be obeyed.
Heads of the Civil Will Party and the Green Party of Mongolia which each has one seat in parliament, signed an agreement on January 30 by confirming their agreement to merge the two parties. It has been agreed in a level of authorities and will finally be resolved at the congresses of the parties by introducing it to their members. CWP chairwoman S. Oyun and GPM chairman D. Enkhbat said that they reached a decision to merge so as to strengthen their policies to safeguard democracy, justice and freedom and become a political power to fulfill social demands. During the signing ceremony, some members of Green Party expressed their being in opposition to the merge. National New Party, United Conservative Party, Mongolian Democratic Movement Party and some civil movements are talking about merging into a National United Party. Their authorities said that it will be resolved at the congresses of the parties and the merging process is on the go.
