Another notification says Druk Chirwang Tshogpa, formed by a group of 233 Registered Voters of Bhutan representing the 20 Dzongkhags, is approved for registration as a Political Party.

The registrations of both the parties were approved after considering certain prerequisites.

For Druk Chirwang Tshogpa, it was rectifying the Election Symbol not to resemble the logo of “De-Suung”, a national symbol and exclude and deregister all individuals enrolled as its members without confirming their status as registered voters and fees collected be reimbursed among others.

For Bhutan Kuen-Nyam Party, not to restrict a registered member to deregister and join another party as long as they are not members of two or more Parties at a given point of time and also commit that the Party Charter will provide for only one Party President, among others.

    The registration of Druk Chirwang Tshogpa on the eve of Nyilo was truly a historic and special moment. It is a moment for DCT to reflect on the important responsibility it has taken on to work towards serving the best interests of the country and people with utmost loyalty and dedication in a manner worthy of responsibility.

    The members of DCT remain humbled and privileged in having been recognized and accepted as a registered political party. DCT would like to dedicate its first successful endeavour to all the citizens of Bhutan.

    Congratulations to Druk Chirwang Tshogpa and Bhutan Kuen-Nyam Party for their successful registration with the ECB .

    We need selfless leaders to spur growth and prosperity of all Bhutanese and our nation as a whole in next five years. Past events of our political parties portrait deplorable economic situations for most Bhutanese, while happiness of party leaders is seen disproportionately uplifted through all cunning means and shrewd political crafts. Any further similar entertainment by party leaders would place Bhutan in a politically and economically vulnerable environment in the future.

    I hope the DCT and BKNT leaderships would honestly reflect on the important responsibilities they are preparing to shoulder and work selflessly towards improving the living standards of all our people by providing jobs to our youths, rather than talking about our happiness to outside world.
