Norovyn Altankhuyag (Mongolian: Норовын Алтанхуяг) is a Mongolian politician who has been the Prime Minister of Mongolia since 2012 and a Member of Parliament. Democratic Party's National Consultative Committee (NCC) elected him as the Leader of Democratic Party of Mongolia in 2008. He worked as the First Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia in the coalition government of the Mongolian People's Party and Democratic Party of Mongolia in 2008-2012. Previously, he served as the Minister of Agriculture and Industry in 1996-2000 and the Minister of Finance in 2004-2006.

Early life

Altankhuyag was born in Uvs Province in Mongolia and attended Ulaangom's ten year school in 1966-1976. Then he was graduated from the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of National University of Mongolia. After the graduation, he was honored to stay as a professor at the university.

Political career

During the 1990 Democratic Revolution in Mongolia, he was one of pioneers in the youth movement. With his colleagues, he initiated the Democratic Socialist Movement. On 21 February 1990, the first meeting to establish the Mongolian Social Democratic Party was held, and he was elected as a member of the party establishing commission.

Between 1990-2006, he served as a General Secretary of different political parties four times. He was elected as the Member of Parliament twice.

Following the 2008 Mongolian parliamentary election, Democratic Party Leader Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj resigned as a result of the election's controversial defeat and Altankhuyag was elected as the Democratic Party's new Leader. During his leadership, Democratic Party of Mongolia has launched "Mongolian People-2020" action plan to strengthen the values of democracy and civil society.[1]
