Ulan Bator, June 26 (SocialNews.XYZ) A total of 259 observers from 40 countries and 21 international organisations will monitor Mongolia's upcoming regular parliamentary elections, as announced by the country's General Election Commission (GEC) on Wednesday.

Also, 27 journalists from 12 international media outlets will cover the elections of the State Great Khural, the country's unicameral parliament, the commission said.


Mongolia, with a population of 3.5 million, has scheduled Friday as the date for the State Great Khural elections, reports Xinhua news agency.

The GEC has registered 1,294 candidates from 19 political parties and two coalitions, as well as 42 independents, for the parliamentary elections.
