Mongolia vote landslide stinging rejection of government policy
June 30 (AFP) A landslide election victory by Mongolia's opposition is a stinging rejection of the government's failed economic policies, analysts and voters said Thursday, as the country struggles to turn its vast natural resources into national wealth.
"Our political parties don't really have a political ideology that unites them," said Mogi Badral Bontoi, CEO of market intelligence firm Cover Mongolia.
"Politicians join their parties not because of their political ideology... but which party gives them the best chance to gain power, gain influence."
