Enkhbayar to run for Parliament?

It looks likely that N.Enkhbayar, former President of Mongolia, will be named the MPRP nominated candidate to run in the up-coming Chingeltei district by-election. Many saw Enkhbayar's candidacy in the by-election as inevitable, while others may have seen it as below him, having served as the President of Mongolia for 4 years. Nowhere to go in politics from there but down. Speculations abound. What will happen if he wins, which looks likely if one were to believe the rumours of a deal between the DP and MPRP.

Update: Enkhbayar's pulled out of the race. D.Zorigt looks likely to be his replacement in the upcoming by-election.
