PARTY LEADERS PLEDGE NOT TO COMPETE IN OFFERING CASH ALLOWANCES

Leaders of political parties, including those not represented in Parliament,  last week signed a pledge that they will not compete with one another in promising cash allowances during next year’s local and parliamentary elections. The memorandum of understanding they signed at a meeting in Government House also said they will respect national security concerns and all national laws. It also reiterated their faith in the parliamentary system of governance and said they would set up working groups to improve the parliamentary structure and strengthen democratic principles. It is, however, not clear if this self-imposed self-restriction is only on raising the amount promised or if it applies to the very first announcement of such allowance by any party.
Those who signed the memorandum were the leaders of the Mongolian People’s Party, the Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Civil Will Party, the National New Party, the Social Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the Traditional United Party, and the Motherland Party.
