ULAN BATOR, Feb. 8 (Xinhua)-- Mongolia's top leaders have sent out greetings to the public to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday.

"People voted for the parliament and as result of this election, a better government has been formed and is working now," he said.

Norov vowed in his greeting to build a clear and transparent government that will work "before people's eyes."

The prime minister also urged people not to drink too much vodka and to respect their elders during the new year.

Zandaakhuu also said lawmakers and the government have reached a consensus over the Oyu Tolgoi project, which had become an arena of political wrestling.

The eastern Asian landlord country is ready to welcome a week-long official Lunar New Year holiday starting on Monday.
