Mongolia Elects First Democratic President

Mongolia made history recently when the first democratic president was elected. “We wish to congratulate the people of Mongolia on their recent presidential election,” said U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly. “In a free and peaceful democratic election on Sunday, May 24, Mongolian voters elected Democratic Party candidate Tshahiagiin Elbegdorj.”

“So many of you prayed for this election,” says an Alliance worker in Mongolia. “Thank you! We are unsure as to how this will affect us and our ability to be here. Please continue to pray.”

“We applaud the people and government of Mongolia for conducting Sunday’s election in a fair and transparent manner, in accordance with the Mongolian constitution,” said Kelly. “Preliminary evaluations of independent observers indicate election problems were minimal, and there have been no reports of election-related violence. This election is a clear demonstration of Mongolia’s continued commitment to democratic reform and represents a real achievement for such a young democracy.”
