Ulaanbaatar Mayor E.Bat-uul announced on Thursday that will be resigning from his position as the chairman of the Capital City Democratic Party.
In his statement, E.Bat-Uul stressed, “The Mongolian People’s Party has made an absolute victory in the city council election.
“First of all, I want to express my gratitude to the General Election Commission for organizing the 2016 elections with excellent preparations and arrangement. I want to thank all supporters of the Democratic Party. I want to thank all citizens who were involved in the city’s development during last four years. I hope that everyone is on the same page with me that the capital city’s environment and appearance has changed.
“The results of the 2016 elections was a political tsunami for the Capital City Democratic Party. We were confident that we [Democratic Party] would have the victory in the 2016 legislative elections.”
Mayor E.Bat-Uul stressed that voters supported deniers of development rather than developers, and added that this election showed how one can succeed through libel and defamation.
E.Bat-Uul concluded that he accepts the absolute victory of the MPP in the city council election and wished success to the new policy makers.
