Anti-government demonstration in Ulaanbaatar May 30; further protests possible in coming weeks

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/30/2019, 12:00 AM until 6/6/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Ulaanbaatar). COUNTRY/REGION Ulaanbaatar


Thousands of people demonstrated in Ulaanbaatar on Thursday, May 30, to protest perceived government corruption. Local reports indicate protesters rallied at Sukhbaatar Square to call for the resignation of multiple top officials following a corruption scandal and to denounce perceived government inaction to address economic and public health grievances.

Further demonstrations are possible in the coming days and weeks.


Speaker Enkhbold and other MANAN politicians allegedly attempted to sell government positions for profit and protest organizers contend the ruling parties have failed to address growing income inequality in the country. 

The May 30 demonstrations were reportedly organized by the general secretary of the opposition Democratic Party, Tsevegdorj Tuvaan. 


Individuals in Ulaanbaatar are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all potential demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
