ABOUT THE MONGOLIAN GREEN PARTY
The Stories of the MGP from its history page
On 9 March 1990, some members of the “Green way” and “Mongolian Green`s movement” who are part of Mongolian Democratic Union jointly established the founding of the Mongolian Green Party in SUKHBAATAR SQUARE and announced its main charter to the public. Therefore, very first founding congress was held on May 13th, then officially registered as a 3rd political party in Mongolia by Supreme Court of Mongolia. We have started our activity within 3,000 members and 12,000 officially. Right after the parliamentary election of 2012, we have renewed our member’s registrations again by the MGP. As of 2016, there are 801 active members.
The ultimate goal of the MGP is to: “Ensure ecologically oriented socio-economic development in Mongolia”, which is the formula for the fundamental idea of the “Global Green Declaration”, we will be cared the legal protections must take place for ecological issues for any socio-economic process.
Citizens of Mongolia have the following full rights and freedoms: Article 16 (1) of the Constitution of Mongolia in 1992: “The right to a healthy and safe environment and to be protected from environmental pollution and ecological imbalance” We believe that the “declaration” of vital importance has been legalized by the “lobbying” of the members of the current Mongolian Green Party.
The MGP has won parliamentary elections with “Democratic Union” coalition in 1996, was in power with the government. In 2000, We have supported the Civil Will Green party which was newly established. As a result of the MGP efforts, the Civil Will Green party chair S. Oyun was elected to Parliament.
We have Supported the Mongolian Social Democratic Movement and started our policy of promoting civil movements under the name of the MGP to parliamentary election of Mongolia. In 2008, We have supported the representatives NGOs of civil movements such as “Healthy social civil movement” and “Civil union”. We have run election with our own created joint civil coalition with the Social Democrat party and our former chairman of the MGP Mr. D. Enkhbat was elected to the parliament for the first time of our history and became a direct opportunity in the legislative process. This was the biggest success and victory of the party.
Before parliamentary election of 2012, The Civil Will Green party has proposed to join as a same party for the election officially. Many members of the party did not accept the proposal. It was a big mistake for the party leaders to play the role for the Civil Will party name has changed to the Civil Will Green party in March 2012. The MGP is still opposed to changing the legal environment in favor of the liberalization of Mongolia’s environmental protection policy and the pursuit of business aspirations.
The MGP has been in the process of organizing the coalition of civil movement and parties for the 2012 Parliamentary Elections to reach the Memorandum of Understanding, but it has been a risky decision for political parties according to “Election Law” of Mongolia. Therefore, we have chosen the way of following the support for civil society. So we have Supported members of the “Chinggis Khan World Academy” NGO who followed the goal of enlightening their people with the knowledge of their ancestors, adhered to the 850th anniversary of Chinggis Khan.
At that time, we were nominated more than 100 people to the parliament and the Capital City Citizens ‘Representative`s congress. It was the biggest activity and action that the largest number of candidates from the MGP have nominated to the election in the history. However, as a result of the “Green” dispute between our party and the CWGP, in particular, “black boxes” of the “unclear” operation of the “black box” law, we won five times less than the 2008 parliamentary vote which is 1.36 percent.
In 2013, for Mongolian Presidential Election, we have stopped our support for President Mr. S.Elbegdorj from Mongolian democratic party. We have supported him to be elected a president on 2009. Specific reason was we did not agree with his nuclear policy in Mongolia, So we have supported Mr. B.Bat-Erdene MP from Mongolian People`s party, we have made this choice rather than a politician. We have made this decision to save ecology, once he always stand against ecological issues we are facing in Mongolia.
The MPP has signed a Memorandum with the MGP. In this MOU, “In conjunction with nuclear threats, the production of uranium and yellow powder is guaranteed by Mongolian citizens as enshrined in Article 16.1.2 of the Constitution of Mongolia” – Living in a safe and healthy environment and protected from environmental pollution and the right to be protected against ecological imbalance. “Unfortunately, there has been no further cooperation in this area.
We have two leaders in the light of the global Green Party standards in order to bring party management and organization into democratic principles, transparency and control concepts to Mongolian political culture. Unfortunately, The Civil Will Green party has 3 chairs which led to the failure of this idea to collapse. That’s why we have made changes on our party rule in November 2012 by the congress of the MGP and Mr. O. Boum-Yalagch has elected as a chairman of the party.
At present, The MGP has translated the charter of Global Greens into Mongolian. Also we have managed canceling membership of Civil Will Green party from Global green network officially on June, 2015 within international supports. Also our Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Relationship of the party, Mr. N.Boldbayar is responsible for councilor of Mongolia in the Asia-Pacific Green Federation as a representative of Mongolian Greens.
The MGP proposes “pragmatic political policy” in Mongolia’s politics in the 2016 parliamentary election, in the context of “revolutionary change” in society, in the context of “public incapacity” and “unfair distribution of social wealth” pollution, “and independence joined the union with Independence.
We are focusing on air, soil and water pollution in Ulaanbaatar, as well as nuclear threats in Mongolia, especially uranium exploration, and work closely with public organizations and citizens to locate foreign nuclear waste in Mongolia and nuclear power plant The problem was that the construction was suspended. In the future, we will focus on politics and the public in order to find the best solution to the problem of Mongolia’s ecological balance.
