Former Mongolian PM likely to return to office

ULAN BATOR, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The parliamentary group of Mongolia's ruling Democratic Party on Wednesday nominated former Prime Minister Rinchinnyamiin Amarjargal as the country's new head of government.
"Mongolia is facing crossroad to make decision to address current economic crisis for the best interest of the nation. We believe that Mr. Amarjargal is the most qualified person to lead the country out from this crisis and unanimously voted for his nomination," said Erdenebat Dondogdorj, the party's leader in parliament.
The nomination is yet to be approved by the Democratic Party's governing body, the National Consultative Committee.
Meanwhile, the ruling party has formed a working group to negotiate with other parliamentary parties on the composition of a new government.
Amarjargal used to be an economic lecturer, and he served as foreign minister from 1998 to 1999 and as prime minister from 1999 to 2000.
He does not belong to any faction within the ruling party and is considered as a pragmatic politician who can work with other parties and groups in the current political and economic crisis in Mongolia.
On Nov. 5, the Mongolian parliament ousted Prime Minister Altankhuyag Norov, who was rumored to be involved with corruption scandals.
