76 seats in the State Great Khural
39 seats needed for a majority
This lists parties that won seats. See the complete results below.
Parliamentary elections were held in Mongolia on 24 June 2020. The result was a victory for the ruling Mongolian People's Party, which won 62 of the 76 seats, a slight decrease from the 65 won in the 2016 elections.
The 76 members of the State Great Khural will be elected by plurality-at-large voting in multi-member constituencies. The electoral system was not decided until a new electoral law was passed on 22 December 2019. The changes were expected to marginalise smaller parties, and also effectively removed the right of 150,000 Mongolian expatriates to vote, as they could not be registered in a specific constituency. The new electoral law also barred people found guilty of "corrupt practices" from standing in elections.
Women's right activists called for raising gender quota for nominations from 20% to 30% but they failed. Currently, female legislators make up 17% (13 seats) in the parliament, the highest number since the first democratic elections in 1990.
