DNT

Ugyen Tshering
Age: 53

Experience: Former Parliamentarian, writer-documentarian.
Education: Bachelor of Arts, Post Graduate in Film Editing, Post Graduate in Television Studies.

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, humble, humane.

Your priority for the constituency.
Youth have so much to offer, and harnessing their potentials is my top priority. Uncared for youth is an issue. Opportunities, space for expression and useful engagement will be natural lures against drugs, alcohol and other social ills. For this the government must support CSOs and NGOs to play a bigger part.
What I dislike about is the process being abused by a few to divide our small population and country. It hurts all of us.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
I love writing human-interest stories. I like getting to know people from all walks of life and election provides that platform.
What I dislike about is the process being abused by a few to divide our small population and country. It hurts all of us.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
To ensure that our youth have a bright future. We need to ensure they become responsible, productive citizens. After all they are our promise for the future.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
Five years of legislative work experience. Contributed out of box thinking. Prevented architectural work of Pemagatsel dzong from being awarded to a foreign contractor. Good at interacting with counterparts and dignitaries from abroad. With a media background, I am well abreast of all the happenings.

The first thing you will do if you win.
Let out a deep sigh of relief and get this heavy thing off my chest.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Social media is a tool, more like a knife in hand. I try to use social media to impart what little I know. I have been a regular writer posting on Facebook for over a decade. If it was and is received with appreciation, it is a boon.

DPT

Phub Tshering
Age: 39 Experience: Served as Dzongkhag Tshogdu Chairman and Lango Gup.
Education: Bachelors in Economics (Hons).

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, down-to-earth, and approachable.

Your priority for the constituency.
Safe drinking water, irrigation water, health and blacktopping of roads are some of the priorities for the constituency.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
I like the fact that people are at the centre of the process as their issues are heard, based on which works would be implemented.
One thing I dislike is the fake rumours and news during elections whereby few Bhutanese people tend to forget their values.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
I am concerned that because of different political views during such time, there may be discrimination and differentiation based on region or views, which could lead to social disintegration.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
I am well aware of the issues here in Paro through my experience.
I have worked at the grass-root level and I know the reality here.
I am hardworking and I can implement things meaning I can walk the talk.

The first thing you will do if you win.
Keeping the political differences aside, I would work together with everyone towards enhancing GNH. Whoever wins, I think what matters is that the candidate had been chosen for the entire people in the constituency. I would work with people to solve common issues.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
I think it is both. It is bad, because lots of wrong messages and false rumours are on it. Good, because it helps people know about candidates’ manifestos and pledges.
