PM Batbold out for a Run with MPP Candidate Ganhuyag

This morning, Ganhuyag (MPP candidate in 23rd electoral district), postponed his usual 7h morning run to a later hour, around 10h to jog together with PM Batbold (blue hat/shirt in photo) who is celebrating his birthday. A group of around 30-50 supporters joined them for the run that led them from Sukhbaatar Square maybe 4km to Zaisan (Soviet memorial).

As is perhaps typical of campaign events with high officials, supporters of Ganhuyag had gathered on Sukhbaatar Sq. 90 minutes earlier to get ready. Here Ganhuyag rallies his supporters ahead of the PM’s arrival.

On the southern side of the Square, the Mongolian military was preparing for a ceremony of graduation from officers’ school.
