Mongolia -- Nambariin Enkhbayar Elected President

We congratulate the people of Mongolia on their successful Presidential election. We also congratulate the Speaker of the Parliament, Nambariin Enkhbayar, on his election to the presidency and look forward to working with him to further promote democracy and economic reform.

The U.S. Embassy fielded nine teams of poll watchers and the International Republican Institute fielded seven more. Those teams together observed more than 100 polling stations in Ulaanbaatar and in rural areas around Mongolia. The election represents another positive step in Mongolia's developing democracy.
