Mongolian PM emphasizes unity as 2012 parliamentary elections near


09:08, November 29, 2011

ULAN BATOR, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The leader of the ruling People's Party, Sukhbaatar Batbold, on Monday stressed the importance of unity of his party as it gears up for the 2012 parliamentary elections.

"As of today, 2008 parliamentary election pledges of our party have been implemented 80 percent," Batbold said.

Meanwhile, the prime minister denied any connections between the People's Party and Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party, which was formed five months ago and shared the original name of the ruling party.

Nambar Enkhbayar, the former president of Mongolia, led a break from the ruling party and formed a separate party using the name of Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party.

"This so-called Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party is a new party ... As the party's chairman, I would like to emphasize that this party has no connection with values of Mongolian People's Party and its assets and its 90-year history," Batbold said.

Batbold said that with the next election due to be held within seven months, it is clear that Enkhbayar's party, recently registered by the supreme court as the 19th political party, is aiming to confuse people and split votes from the ruling party.
