Presidential 2021

The presidential election was held on June 9th 2021. Candidates were nominated by May 2. The four parties represented in parliament were eligible to nominate candidates, but only three did: MPP (U Khurelsukh), DP (S Erdene), and KhUN (D Enkhbat)

U Khurelsukh won election with 67.7% of the vote on 59.35% turnout.
