The Mongolian Parliament has gone against the recent recommendation of its commission on new laws and has approved the addition of a new annual public holiday in Mongolia to commemorate the birthday of Chinggis Khaan (Genghis Khan).

Late last month (2012-10-28), the parliamentary commission on new laws of the Mongolian Parliament rejected in commission the addition of a new annual public holiday in Mongolia to commemorate the birthday of Chinggis Khaan (Genghis Khan).

Originally, the Government of Mongolia wanted to mark the new public holiday for the birthday of Chinggis Khaan on November 14th, every year. But in the end, it was agreed that the new annual public holiday in Mongolia will occur on the first day of the first day of winter, according to the Tögs Buyant Mongolian lunar calendar, that is to say Wednesday, November 14, in 2012.

The new Chinggis Khaan public holiday in Mongolia will be compensated by the cancellation of the November 26 Independence Day public holiday.
