Democracy in Bhutan- Part I

Bhutan has experienced five years of democracy. The citizens of the country are now more clear about the form of the government. So, I would like to write the post on the aforementioned subject dedicated to all four political parties who qualified from the letter of intent that the Election Commission of Bhutan has prescribed for them.

In this first part I would dedicate this post to the Druk Phuensum Tshogpa, the ruling government of Bhutan from 2008 to 2013. I write this not to influence anyone nor that I support the party. My readers must be clear that I will be writing similar post for all other three parties, so never think that I am politically inclined towards DPT.

Druk Phuensum Tshogpa, after securing 45 seats in the National Assembly of the Parliament of Bhutan has ruled the country for five years. Druk Phuensum Tshogpa believes in "Growth with Equity and Justice" in the "Pursuit of Gross National Happiness". The party is led by its president Jigme Yoeser Thinley, who was the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Bhutan.

 In this period, there were so many appreciations for the government from all rounds and corners of the citizen. On the other hand there were so many people who were frustrated and not satisfied with the ruling government. but I don't have any comment to make in this very topic.

After successful completion of their five years, DPT again comes in the public to contest for the second round of the National Assembly Elections. DPT and other political parties nowadays introduces their vision. mission and manifestos for the people of the country. Some people of the country believes in the bags of experience that DPT possess; while on the other hand some group believes for the change. They believe experience will be gained once given a chance.

So, I would like to make my readers to think about whom to vote for. If DPT has meet their promised pledges and ruled the government according to the constitution of the country, go for DPT. If not why not try for a change. Voting is the secret power and duties/responsibility bestowed upon all of us, so use it. DO VOTE FOR NA Elections-2013.

As far as all are concern DPT has done a lot. Few may blame because it is politics. It is the game of blaming for sure whatever the work done may be! Rather then blaming and figuring what not satisfied we are, it is better we use the power and duty to VOTE!!
