DNT

Pema Wangda
Age: 60
Experience: Former labour secretary.
Education: Masters in Public Administration.

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, hardworking and dedicated.

Your priority for the constituency.
Drinking water, farm road repair and maintenance, new roads to connect villages and reduce travel time and distance. Widen and blacktop Tshelingor to Pemagatshel highway.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
Knowing the nooks and corners of the constituency and understanding people’s difficulties and their desires. The good or bad influencesgoshay gnenshays have on the simple folks. Simple villagers don’t seem to have minds of their own and they seem to be tagging thegoshay gnenshays, which I find is not right for a healthy democracy.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
Making the villagers understand that in politics that damtse to a particular party doesn’t work and that their allegiance needs to change with the change in circumstances.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
My party’s manifesto, which is for thenyamchung; my experiences in the civil service and governance and my maturity.

The first thing you will do if you win.
Call all my supporters and reaffirm my commitment to fulfil the pledges I made to them.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Neutral because I don’t depend on it knowing that majority of the voters in my constituency don’t have access to it.

DPT

Lungten Namgyel
Age: 34
Experience:Department of immigration, MoHCA as immigration inspector for three years.
Education: BSc. Life Science.

Describe yourself in three words.
Straightforward, tolerant and committed.

Your priority for the constituency.
I don’t dream to make my constituency like the capital city within five years. We are still deprived of basic needs like water and shelter. My top priority in my constituency is to solve water problem and blacktopping of roads.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
Like the fair conduction of election by ECB but little worried about fake news, which may weaken our young democracy.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
To reduce the national debt.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
DPT has got good policies for both short-term and long-term development of the nation. It has a capable and experienced Party President. I am the right person for the people of Nanong-Shumar as a reliable, approachable, hardworking and dynamic candidate.

The first thing you will do if you win.
Meet the people of my constituency to remind them on the importance of unity as one nation, one people, and discuss and prioritise constituency development activities.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
It is always a boon but it becomes bane sometimes due to its misuse.
