Initiating Draft Law is no Small Matter

Our lawmakers’ recently drafted a series of laws whose negative consequences when implemented often resulted in discontent among the society and the public at large. Any law with a short lifespan that has to be amended regularly can only be considered a waste of time and money rather than an effective undertaking.

As a businesswoman with a law degree, I am confident to have the necessary background and the correct understanding on how to draft laws adapted to real life situations.
The private sector constitutes 80% of the economy, and consequently, it is the expansion and development of businesses that will produce the seeds of the country’s development. And what is more important for foreign and domestic investors and business entrepreneurs alike, then the stability of the country’s legal environment?

This may explain why issues constantly arise when it comes to apply transparency in the law-making process, or obtain people’s and business entrepreneurs’ opinions prior to the adoption of legal norms and procedures. Over 40 thousand business entities conduct regular operations in Mongolia, and they know too well how difficult it is to undertake business activities in a country where laws are constantly amended. 

Any law draft should be the result of social and economic circumstances and requirements to implement the reforms necessitated by these real life demands. Laws are the result of comparative and historical analyses of international practices and domestic situations which emerges from people’s common needs and interests. The only role of the Parliament is to confirm this process and put it into an practical format. So how can the right to initiate the drafting of a new law be justified for a Parliament member, when this one has no adequate professional qualifications? Should the Parliament not adopt rather
