Last Friday, the Parliament has approved the Resolution Draft for recognizing the rights and date for swearing in for Ts.Elbegdorj, the next President of Mongolia.

The 80.3 percent of the Parliament Members were present for the discussion of recognizing the rights of new President. Even though, the PM and Government Cabinet members were present, the President N.Enhbayar was absent.

The Session started as N.Luvsanjav, the General Election Committee Director introduced the Committee's Resolution for recognizing the new President's rights and a briefing on the Election result; 73.59 percent of the total voters participated in the Election and 51.21 percent of them voted for Ts.Elbegdorj and 47.41 percent voted for N.Enhbayar.

The Head of Standing Committee of Governmental Organizations, O.Enkhtuvshin announced that "The first round of vote of Presidential Election was valid and there is no specific reason that is contrary for the Candidate to become the President of Mongolia therefore, Ts.Elbegdorj is voted as the President and would like to request the Parliament to approve the Resolution Draft for recognizing Ts.Elbegdorj's rights and the date for swearing in for the Presidency".

The Parliament approves the full rights of Ts.Elbegdorj by 100 percent vote and the Ceremony shall take place at 12.06 PM on 18th of July, 2009. Even though, the time set was at 11.00 AM, Ts.Elbegdorj wanted to change it for 12.06 PM and it could be presumably due to 1206, the legendary year when the Great Mongol state was established.

According to the Law, when the new President swears in, the former President's power shall be suspended on the same day. So June 18th shall be the day for President N.Enhbayar to resign.
