Message from Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa President
With utmost humility, I, on behalf of Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa team, congratulate all political parties for their participation in the primary round of the third National Assembly elections. It is a matter of pride, to be part of the process with political parties formidable and those that have played critical role in the initial stages of the country’s democratic transition.
In the democratic process Bhutan embarked on, we have all played our part in strengthening and sustaining the process that started in 2008.
We would particularly like to extend our Tashi Delek to the first registered political party, PDP, for the vital contribution since the beginning of the process 10 years ago and Bhutan Kuen-nyam Party for returning to offer people a choice despite innumerable challenges.
We congratulate Druk Phuensum Tshogpa for making it into the general round of the elections for the third consecutive term. We look forward to a clean and healthy campaigning.
As for Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa, we have come a long way since we first set foot in 2013. We believed in offering people a choice of political aspirations and that kept us afloat despite being unable to make it past the primaries then.
This election, our dreams for the country are finally coming true, all thanks to you. We express our gratitude to each and every one of you who exercised your franchise. We are assured that a good understanding prevails among Bhutanese of the importance of democracy and that it is about the future of the country, not so much political parties. We are convinced that more choices of political parties could be offered to the Bhutanese electorate in future elections.
The kind of support Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa received today is a strong indication that you believe in the cause we are pursuing for the country. It has dawned on us even more that time has come for us to work together towards Narrowing the Gap and that prioritising health of every Bhutanese meets the wishes of the people.
As we gear towards the general round of elections hereon, we seek your blessings and urge you to join us on the journey that will be the beginning of new times, where poor are uplifted, health services reach the people and communities reunited irrespective of political affiliations. We will be a country, progressing with strong democracy, under the noble guidance of His Majesty the King.
Hereon, as we return to campaign for the general round, we do so with the reassurance of your continued support. We will strive to seek your blessings that will enable us to serve you in the capacity of your elected government. We are all in it, together, in Nyamrup Spirit.
