Mongolian men looks at the sprawling city of Ulan Bator, Mongolia, 28 June 2012. Mongolians headed to the polls early 28 June to elect the next parliament. The front-runner is the ruling Mongolian People's Party (MPP), followed closely by the more market-oriented Democratic Party. The MPP is also facing a challenge from a faction split from its own ranks and led by former president Nambaryn Enkhbayar, who is prevented from running in person by a pending corruption charge, which he claims is politically motivated.
