Q: What are Mongolia’s prospects for future political stability?


A: Excellent. The Mongolian political system provides for “separation of powers”: the Ikn Khural’s members select the Prime Minister to preside over the Cabinet, while the Mongolian people directly elect the President, who serves as Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. He has veto power over new laws, which requires a super majority to override. He serves a maximum of two four year terms.
