National Council Election


The democracy in Bhutan did not come as the will of the people, neither because of the social crisis that took up the pace of democracy in our country. Democracy in Bhutan is extremely unique and its principles are all based upon itself. It is based upon our culture and traditions which is our greatest asset. Bhutan is the youngest democratic country in the world. The first government, Druk Phuensum Tshogpa and the National Council are about to complete their first term of five years. They did what they could do. They served with their out most dedications and loyalty to the King, country and the people.

When it comes to democracy, it is all about electing the representative from our own constituencies that will serve the best for us. The voting right is being given to all Bhutanese above age eighteen irrespective of gender, ethnic group and culture. So, when rights are bestowed upon us, it is the responsibilities of every Bhutanese to exercise this right.

So, to exercise my own right it was great privileged and pleasure to vote for my own National Council candidate who will represent Mongar District for next five years. I was sad that I could not go to my own constituency to vote, yet I could avail the voting rights through the postal ballot. There were three candidates who participated and came into the race from Mongar Dzongkhag. I hope and am confident that I chose my own capable candidate that will really look after the problems of the people in the dzongkhag and the nation as a whole. ALL THE BEST FOR THREE OF YOU: MR. NAICHU, MR. SONAM WANGCHUK, MR. TSHERING WANGCHEN. TASHI DELEK.
