Party workers and door-to-door campaigns hinder free and fair elections?


Aug 27, 2014

Newshour-ElectionHurdles- Party coordinators and door-to-door campaigns during elections divide communities and hinder in conducting free and fair elections. The local leaders of Punakha raised the concern during the recent Dzongkhag Tshogdu. But how genuine are these reasons? Does it really have impact during the election? BBS sought the views of the people from across the country and also some of the politicians.

    The local leaders of Punakha are right that party coordinators and door-to-door campaigns during elections divide communities and hinder in conducting free and fair elections. In-fact, the party coordinators and door-to-door campaigns are the main root of corruptions. Without this there will be harmony and peace at the time of election as well before and after too. Better to conduct debate among the candidates and Q & A sessions with the public at each Gewogs so to make public understand their manifestos.

    I fully agree with the discussion that coordinators creating disharmony in the community, we need to have good team who pass the right message and information to the public.
