President of Mongolia Khaltmaagiin Battulga has submitted an official letter proposing to call an extraordinary session of the State Great Khural to Speaker G.Zandanshatar.
The official letter reads:
“For the purposes of supporting the businesses in the times of difficulties due to the global pandemic through promoting households, I had submitted a draft parliamentary resolution on Special measures for overcoming the impoverishment and social and economic difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic, on January 8th, 2021. However, the State Great Khural overlooked the draft resolution and closed its autumn session without reading the submitted document.
Moreover, after several submissions of draft amendments to the Law on Currency Regulation, the majority voted for reading the draft amendments, finally on October 19th, 2018. Nevertheless, the Parliament has not taken any action towards adopting the amendments for two years and three months.
Immediate actions and readings of the necessary bills are expected from the Parliament in these times of difficulties caused by the COVID-19 response measures, which are taking their toll on people’s already worsening living conditions and the social and economic situations.
Thus, I put forward a proposal to immediately call an extraordinary session of the State Great Khural, in reference to Section 1, Article 1 of the Law on President of Mongolia, and Section 2, Article 19 of the Law on the State Great Khural of Mongolia, and to execute readings of the draft amendments to the Law on Currency Regulation and the draft resolution on Special measures for overcoming the impoverishment and social and economic difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic.”
