June 30 Preliminary Results II from GEC: First-Past-the-Post

Yesterday, I posted results that were based on a news.mn website that reproduced results announced by the General Election Commission at noon. I was later accused on Twitter to be using wrong information, but neither of the accusers bothered to point me to the right information, unfortunately. As I looked on-line this morning, the page that I based yesterday’s calculations on has disappeared and a new page has appeared in its stead on the news.mn website.

Below I am offering the results based on that new page.

Two candidates came in second or third, respectively, but received less than the minimum required for election (28%, according to Art. 48.4 of the election law). Batzorig for the MPP in 22 – Bayanzurkh, and Erkhembayar for the DP in 26 – Songinokhairkhan. That means, a run-off election for those seats will have to be held. According to Art 48.6,

re-polling referred to in Article 48.4 hereof shall involve candidates with the most votes and double the number of the contested mandate(s)

When there is a single seat that is not won because no one received more than 28% of the vote, we double this single seat (the “contested mandate” in 48.6) and thus conclude that the top two recipients in the voting will be involved in a run-off. [Thanks to Enkhbold Z for pointing me in the right direction on this issue.]

All that would add up to DP 21, MPP 19, MPRP 4, Independent 3, with two seats unfilled awaiting a run-off election, but one of those involves two MPP candidates, so it is included in the MPP seat total here.
