Mongolia - Election 2008 updates: MPRP looks set to win

Against all expectations, MPRP (MAXH) looks set to win this election, with 38 confirmed seats from the rural regions only as of this afternoon, which makes 50% of total seats. UB City results are not yet out. MPRP has already started the celebration by thanking their supporters during a press conference.

I do not know what to say. MPRP has a lot of support from the rural areas, while the DP's main support base is in UB and central regions. I suppose you could say that the majority of voters voted for S.Bayar rather than for the MPRP. Nevertheless, here we go again for another 4 years.
