Different proposals in the principle on the revision were voted on and the majority of the members of the standing committee decided to transfer the revision to the plenary session.

The Constitutional Court of Mongolia considered a dispute on whether certain provisions of the Law on Parliamentary Election violate the Constitution on April 22. This issue is up for parliamentary review, and standing committees are discussing the conclusion.
There were no different proposals in principle on the conclusion. Therefore, the members of the standing committee decided to reject the conclusion.
The standing committee discussed the issue of releasing and appointing a member of the General Election Commission (GEC). Particularly, R.Sodkhuu, a member of the GEC, was resigned, and U.Enkhtur was relieved of his post. The proposal to
appoint the Commissioner General of the General Police Department of Mongolia S.Baatarjav and Chairman of General Authority for Intellectual Property and State Registration B.Baasandorj as member of the GEC was supported.
