Mongolia passes law on right to information

The Mongolian parliament has passed a right to information law after a five-year debate, local media reported Friday.

According to the resolution, any citizen or legal body has the right to seek information from government organizations. Those operating on money from the government budget also have an obligation to reveal information to the public.

The law covers the work of goods and services purchased with money from state and provincial budgets, selection of tenders, and the budget, financial accounts and so on.

The law comes at a time when the Mongolians are demanding detailed information over the tender selection process of development of the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine in southern Mongolia.

Some provisions of the law will come into force from Dec. 1, local media reported.
