Mongolia Democratic Party Confident of Victory After Voting

Mongolia’s Democrats expressed confidence they will form the next ruling party after elections for parliament, even as officials ordered another vote in two districts and early results showed no group won a majority.

The Democratic Party said it won 36 of 76 seats in the State Great Khural, according to a statement posted on its website yesterday. The election commission, which confirmed that the party won more seats than any other group, ordered new polls in two districts June 30 after winning candidates failed to garner enough ballots.
