The president of Mongolia (Mongolian: Монгол Улсын Ерөнхийлөгч, Mongol Ulsyn Yerönkhiilögch) is the executive head of state of Mongolia. The current president is Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh after the constitutional referendum in 2021 in which Khaltmaagiin Battulga was forced to resign.
The president is elected by the citizens of Mongolia. Political parties with representation in the State Great Khural nominate candidates. The president serves a non-repeatable six-year term. The president can be removed from office if two-thirds of the Khural find him guilty of abusing his powers or violating his oath. Before inauguration, however, the president-elect must suspend their membership of any political party.
Generally, Mongolian leaders have lived at the President’s Residence at the Ikh Tenger Complex (Mongolian: Их тэнгэр цогцолбор). The complex is a protected area in the mountains of Bogdo Uul. The residence is located next to the mansions of the Speaker of Parliament and Prime Minister.
In 2017, newly-elected president Battulga said that he intended to live in the "Winter Palace" in central Ulaanbaatar, also known as the Marshal’s Residence, in a departure from tradition. It is located in the heart of the capital between Peace Avenue and Seoul Street (next to the 1st School and the Russian Embassy). The two story-building was built in 1947 as the residence of Marshal Khorloogiin Choibalsan. It has two luxury rooms and five other rooms as well as 52-80 person capacity banqueting hall.
