Democracy in Mongolia -- Opposition wins elections

Mongolia's opposition Democratic Party candidate Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj has won the presidential election, according to both sides in the campaign, reports Reuters.

Mongolia's democracy is a mere 20 years old, so lets give this country sandwiched between communist China and Putin's Russia, a nice round of applause.
