    Before

    § 4. If no one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the first round, a second round vote between the two candidates who received the most votes shall be held two weeks after the first round. The candidate who receives more than 50% of the vote shall be elected president.

    After

    § 4. If no one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the first round, a second round vote between the two candidates who received the most votes shall be held two weeks after the first round. The candidate who receives more than 50% of the vote shall be elected president. Moreover,it is necessary take into account the white vote, is imperative to avoid the phenomenon of abstention. The white vote is therefore a counter-power, if it gets the majority, there must be new elections, with new candidates.The aim is to reduce the phenomenon of abstention and to have representative who would be really democratically elected.

    Justification

    In Mongolia, presidential elections take into account white votes as valid votes counted in the count of votes and their percentage (Articles 97.9 and 99.2 of the Mongolian Electoral Law).

    However, a candidate must meet an absolute majority of votes (more than 50% of votes) to be elected, it is therefore possible that no candidate reaches the threshold required, even in the second round. Such a result then leads to the holding of new elections (Article 8.6.2) for which all parties must present new candidates.

    For the presidential elections, I think that, take into account the white vote, is imperative to avoid the phenomenon of abstention. The white vote is therefore a counter-power, if it gets the majority, there must be new elections, with new candidates.The aim is to reduce the phenomenon of abstention and to have representatives who would be really democratically elected.
