At least two exiled parties, Druk National Congress – Democractic  (DNC-D) and Bhutan National Democratic Party (BNDP), hailed the PDP’s overwhelming success in what both the parties described it as “landslide victory” of the future Prime Minister Tobgay.

“The BNDP congratulates People’s Democratic Party for its victory in the second general election held on July 13 and calls upon PDP to come forward with sincerity of purpose for resolution of Bhutan’s political problem, including repatriation of willing Bhutanese refugees with honor and dignity,” BNDP Chief Executive DNS Dhakal (Ph.D) said in a statement issued by the party on Monday.

Dr Dhakal has also called upon PDP to make objective assessment of the current domestic and foreign policies and take corrective measures keeping in viewpoint long-term interest of Bhutan and Bhutanese people.

While, Chairperson Thinley Penjore from the United States said, “DNC-D would humbly express our Trashi Delek on the landslide victory of PDP under your dynamic and charismatic leadership during this second general election. We are confident that your party will keep up to the assurances.”

Thinley also asked the yet-to-be formed Tobgay’s government to bring about a lasting solution to the long awaited problem that has displaced over one sixth of its population and deprived several thousand from their rights voting franchise.

The PDP won 32 seats out of 47 during the second general election on July 13, empowering Tobgay to be sworn as the country’s new Prime Minister. A highly placed source has disclosed that if everything goes as per the plan, the Harvard alumni will be sworn as as 14th Prime Minister on July 23.

  1. Thinley also asked the yet-to-be formed Tobgay’s government to bring about a lasting solution to the long awaited problem that has displaced over one sixth of its population and deprived several thousand from their rights voting franchise

    The above statement projects the status of the leader as one that is conscious of pertinent issues of the Bhutanese in exile feeling for every one of then and longing for durable solution for peace and security to the sovereign nation. Hope to see such conscious leader at home to contest for election from his constituency and to lead the nation with broad ideas for the peace of Tsa-Wa-Sum.
