This paper outlines Mongolia's regime transformation, focusing on its 2000 constitutional amendments that turned Mongolia into a parliamentary system, albeit with a popularly elected fixed-term president. The paper also emphasizes the prominence of institutional authority to form the executive in determining regime type, and makes an effort to clarify Duverger's second criterion of semi-presidentialism as the presidential authority to form the cabinet.
