Political Parties


Ran into a list of (no doubt a selection of) the Political Parties of Mongolia. This is what you call a multiple-party system. The most striking entry is probably the Ethnographical Party, whatever that may be. To be clear, the communist party that is listed here is not the party that reigned the country for seventy years as a communist party, because that is the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP), which are now Social Democrats and member of Socialist International, unlike the Democratic Socialist Party or the New Social Democratic Party. Of course.
No need to point at the frequent use of the country's name in the party listings.

Is it the Zorig party or the Green party to which Oyun (Zorig's sister) is a member?

And could someone explain to me which parties are part of the Democratic Coalition that currently controls half the seats in the Khural?

I suppose Oyun's party is the "Mongolian Civil Courage Party", although normally it is translated as Civil Will Party
