Summary of Interview 090101C with Batjargal
Her father wasn’t a party figure but he was an statesman of economics. He was a highly responsible person in an important position and he had been in this position for 18 years. The dargas quickly changed and their native homeland, their affiliated aimags influenced this. It was the tendency of being lifted up to a high position. The official position determined the people’s life at that time. The dargas had authority. An official position was very important in the socialist regime. Though it is said there’s democracy in Mongolia and the human rights are esteemed, she has talked in detail about the abnormal process of democracy in Mongolia and authority, official positions and democracy.
