Mongolia's ruling party has won a majority in Sunday's parliamentary elections, according to preliminary results released Monday.

The ruling Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party won 41 seats, more than half of the 76 seats in parliament, said Battulga Bataa, chairman of the General Election Commission.

In addition, preliminary results showed the Mongolian Democratic Party taking 25 seats and independents winning one seat.

Final election results were not expected till Tuesday.

The election registered 311 candidates nominated from 11 parties and one coalition, as well as 45 independent candidates. The new parliament members will serve a four-year term.

There are 26 election districts in the country, from which two to four members of parliament will be elected.

The State Great Hural is the supreme power organization of Mongolia. The new government will be established solely or jointly by parties that win seats in parliament.

Opinion polls showed that this year's election would be a competition between the two main parties, the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party and the Democratic Party.
