A wreath was laid on Monday at the statue of Sukhbaatar to celebrate the 89th anniversary of the party and the day of Patriots.

Damdin Sukhbaatar - one of the founders of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) and military leader of the 1921 revolu­tion - was a member of one of the two secret groups that were to merge in the early 1920 and become the MPP (Mongolian People’s Army).

The MPRP was founded in March 1, 1921 and was the ruling party of the Mongolian People’s Republic during 75 straight years from 1921 to 1996 – during which no other political par­ties were allowed – and from 2000 to 2004.

Among the officials present at the ceremony were Parliament Speaker D. Demberel, Prime Minister S. Bat­bold, Deputy Premier M. Enkhbold, as well as representatives of the Min­istry of Defense, the General Head­quarters of the Armed Forces, the Citizens Representative Meeting of the Capital City, and the Ulaanbaatar Mayor Office.
