The Mongolian People's Party recently ruled, through congressional vote, to change the term limits for Mongolian President from two terms to one. In response, sitting President Battulga, who comes from the opposition Democratic Party, called for the Mongolian People's Party to be dissolved. As both sides wrestle for absolute power, the question becomes can a country that sits between China and Russia maintain this 20 year run of democracy? Here to discuss is Mongolian superstar comedian Bataa Batbileg. Follow him on Instagram and check out his own UB Comedy Club in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
