Abstract: The fast growing IT is initiating a lot of opportunities in Mongolia. Using the Internet as an approach to deliver the decisions of the government to the public and to encourage the e-participation of the public in the Parliamentary legislative process is an effective way in Mongolia because the country has a vast territory and lowest population densities in World. The issue of encouraging the e-participation of the public in the Parliamentary legislative process is an essential even though; the Internet is not available for everybody in Mongolia people who live in rural parts of Mongolia and specifically those of the underserved communities do not obtain government information on time, and their comments and suggestions are not considered in the Parliamentary legislative process. Therefore, it was fundamental to improve the Parliament website in order to enable the engagement of citizens in the Parliamentary legislative process, and the Secretariat of Parliament of Mongolia implemented the project called “Engaging citizen e-participation in the Parliamentary legislative process” with the financial support of IDRC. In the scope of the project, the project team conducted survey to determine the website usage factually, and randomly selected 1200 participants from Zavkhan, Khuvsgul, Sukhbaatar, Govi-Altai provinces and Ulaanbaatar city. The participants were: 1.The public servants-30% 2.Law enforcement officers-15%, 3. Businessmen-15%, 4.Representatives of non-governmental organizations-20%, 5.Students-10% and 6.Others-5%. The Parliament website was renewed, and 2 remote soums were chosen and e-participation of the pubic in the Parliamentary legislative process through the Parliament website of these soums were adequate. The Parliament website usage training was conducted in 16 soums, and e-participation in the Parliamentary legislative process was considerably increased as result of the training. On the contrary, mutual relation between the members of Parliament and electorate has not been improved.
