    Former Mongolian Prime Minister Khurelsukh Ukhnaa is set to become the country’s sixth democratically elected president since the former communist country’s peaceful transition to democracy in 1992. Preliminary results on June 9, 2021, show Khurelsukh won nearly 70 per cent of the vote, defeating rivals Enkhbat Dangaasuren from the Right Person Electorate Coalition and Erdene Sodnomzundui of the opposition Democratic Party. A former wrestler, the president-elect earned the nickname “Fist” after a video emerged of him punching a member of parliament in 2012.
