Namgay Tshering
Age: 40
Experience: 14 years with health ministry as Senior Policy and Planning officer, Chief Programme Officer. National Professional Officer with World Health Organisation.
Education: Masters in Public Health and PGD in gender mainstreaming.

Describe yourself in three words.
A man of action, selfless and optimistic.

Your priority for the constituency.
Promotion of rural economy through improved agricultural and livestock production. Improved farm and feeder roads, and enhanced access to market for agricultural produce. Ensure 100 percent safe and reliable drinking water in four gewogs and 20 chiwogs along with enhanced access to quality, health and education facilities.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
The election process provides us with the opportunity to interact and know more people, which I like.
I dislike that there are chances of some candidates’ vested interests to be the cause of communal disharmony.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
At the moment, current public debt and shortsighted plans, programmes and policies which would affect continuity and sustainability.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
Vote for change.
There have been no significant developmental activities in the constituency in the last 10 years.
Health, education and agriculture being the priority for DNT, I am in a better position to serve the people.

The first thing you will do if you win.
I will continue the programmes that the last two governments have started. I will also work towards 100 percent safe and reliable drinking water in the constituency. I would also work towards reviewing, upgrading, and establishing health centres in strategic locations to ensure easy access to quality and timely healthcare services.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
It is both boon and bane for me.


DPT

Chencho Dorji
Age: 49
Experience: Former banker and former Member of Parliament.
Education:Post Graduate in Banking and Finance.

Describe yourself in three words.
Sincere, passionate and honest.

Your priority for the constituency.
To address water shortages for both drinking and irrigation and to explore an alternative market for cash crops.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
I like the way the ECB and other constitutional institutions have been supporting this election.
I dislike unrealistic pledges that political parties made for the sake of winning votes.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
Addressing youth unemployment and achieving self-reliance are I believe, some of the biggest challenges.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
I hope the people will support the ideology and principle of the party and the role DPT has played in strengthening democracy.
I am passionate about what I have pledged for the constituency.
Change for the sake of simply changing the government is not necessarily a way to strengthen democracy.

The first thing you will do if you win.
Immediately address water shortages and initiate projects to address youth unemployment.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
I believe that social media is a reflection of how one conducts oneself and we must respect it.
