    With lots of graduates registered a youth wing, now they will not be able to sit for BCSE. Hope you will do something about it.

    It’s a good example set by PDP. But I think they should also involve Dzongkhag coordinator in the PM elect in future…If PDP really believes in their ideology of Wangtse- Chirpel, there should also be a provision for members of parliament and others to re-elect new PM if the current PM fail to perform well during his tenure.
    I liked the step further taken by PDP for now. Lets see how they performs ….Good Luck PDP, Good Luck citizen

    Now that the party has entrusted authority to you, I hope you will draw on your wisdom to form a cabinet that is in line with the constitutional requirements such as no more than two ministers from one dzongkhag and regionally balanced representation as was done by the previous government. All the best.

    Cheers and tashi delek Tshering Tobgay and the pdp party. We know that pm candidate should be TT only since he was the sole bearer of trouble faced during the pre and election time. credit should be given to him only for he was the one solely responsible for defaming DPT and it was his sole effort that defeated DPT thrrough means of putting influencial people and invisible person from top.
