The MPRP is in power.

Miyeegombyn Enkhbold (Mongolian: Миеэгомбын Энхболд; born 1964) is the current Prime Minister of Mongolia. He took office on January 25, 2006 following the controversial collapse of Tsakhiagiyn Elbegdorj's Government. Since 2005 he is the chairman of the ex-communist Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP).

As applies to most aspects of Mongolia, things are incredibly complex. The single-party role of the Mongolian Peoples' Revolutionary Party (MPRP or, more accurately, MAHN) is done, and it has become just one party -- though a dominant party -- in a multi-party democratic balancing act, we shall see. Perhaps most importanty, the view toward the past is much more healthy than in the former CCCP and, for example, statues of Lenin, Stalin (though the largest is now in a strip-bar), Zhukov, Sukhbaatar, Choibalsan, and Tsedenbal remain (and haven't been junked away into an abandoned park as has happened in Moscow). While the masoleum of Sukhbaatar and Choibalsan in Sukhbaatar Square in central Ulan Baatar was (rather silently and secretly) cleared away (to some considerable public protest and shock), to be replaced by a big Chengiz Khan monument (outbreak of nationalism?), the statue of Sukhbaatar still survives. (Though ask me again when I get back from UB in a few weeks....) Here, last summer, was Sukhbaatar:
