Ulaanbaatar, June 6, 2024 /MONTSAME/.  The spring session of the State Great Khural, the final session of the incumbent Parliament closed on June 05, 2024, ahead of the upcoming Elections of the State Great Khural, scheduled to take place on June 28, 2024.


Chairman of the State Great Khural Zandanshatar Gombojav noted in his closing address, “ The approval of the revised Law on the State Great Khural and Law on Procedure of State Great Khural, in compliance with the Amendments to the Constitution marks the beginning of a new stage in parliamentary development as these laws legalize sovereignty, structure, procedure, and operations of State Great Khural to be formed with 126 Members.”


During its spring session, the parliament convened for 58 days and approved over 240 laws and resolutions.

The Chairman of the State Great Khural highlighted some of the laws, underscoring, “The Law on the National Sovereign Wealth Fund was approved to guarantee the legal basis for Mongolians to own Mongolian land and Mongolian wealth and enjoy its benefits equally and fairly to all citizens. It enables the concept of amendments to the Constitution of Mongolia in 2019 to be realized.”


“Law on the Legal Status of the United Association of Herder Families, Law on Reducing the Negative Impact of Climate Change on Traditional Livestock Breeding, and Law on the Legal Status of Herders will shift the livestock sector to a new path of production and development rather than consumption. The long-term and short-term policies of the government to support the livelihoods and activities of herders are determined by these laws. The first results can be seen including herders getting their loans postponed, cooperatives receiving discounted loans, and the "New Cooperative" movement gaining momentum,”
