The State Great Khural (Mongolian: Улсын Их Хурал, Ulsyn Ikh Khural; also State Great Hural. English: State Great Assembly) is the unicameral Parliament of Mongolia. It represents the legislative together with the government. State Great Khural is located in the Saaral Ordon.



All 76 members represents 26 multi-member constituencies, and are elected by Proportional Representation for a term of four years. The election is only valid if 50% of the electorate vote. Mongolian citizens are allowed to vote from the age of 18 if they live in Mongolia. They may be elected to office at the age of 25.


The members of parliament elect a chairperson from among their own numbers. The chairperson executes the roles of the speaker of the legislative as well as deputy of the president, and is ranked second in the hierarchy of the state after the president. The chairperson supervises the sessions of the parliament, and is responsible for its voting procedures. He automatically (ex officio) becomes a member of the National Security Council.


The Great State Khural draws up new laws in conjunction with the government, and decides on their introduction. The parties represented in parliament nominate candidates for the direct election of the president. The parliament confirms the prime minister (proposed by the president) and the other ministers. It can veto initiatives of the president with a 2/3 majority. A 2/3 majority is also necessary for a change of the constitution.
