Speaker accepts MP Kinga Tshering’s resignationThe National Assembly Speaker accepted the member of Opposition Kinga Tshering’s resignation.

The resignation was accepted after the North Thimphu MP came in person and stood by his original resignation letter submitted on August 11.

According to the Speaker, Jigme Zangpo, Kinga Tshering applied for study leave to undertake a course in Harvard University.

But as an extended leave would violate provisions of the Constitution, National Assembly Act and Rules of Procedure of Parliament, he was denied the study leave.

After a negotiation to reschedule the course failed and leave extension denied, MP Kinga Tshering submitted his resignation this month.

He served as the representative of North Thimphu Constituency for three years, during which he also represented in number of Parliamentary Committees.

  1. No joke please

    Please don’t make fun of such a noble post. People of your constituency elected you with a lot of hope that you will represent them. Didn’t you have such a plan before you stood for election?

    concerned citizen.
