United as one
The third round of general election is round the corner and by the end of next week some of the voters would have exercised their adult franchise through the facilitation booths and postal ballots. The voters must use their knowledge and wisdom to choose the right candidate. The two political parties are leaving no stones unturned to woo the voter’s to vote for them. Most of the candidates are pushing forward their pledges with a hope that their party will get through the general election and form the government.
Voters are swayed to and fro and are left in the dilemma of the experienced party or giving opportunity to the new party. Of having voted for two parliamentary elections already our electorate has gained much experience and will definitely making their right choice on the polling date.
Democracy has always been considered the best form of the government as the majority wins the race. The people get the chance to elect the right candidate who can serve them and act like the bridge between the people and the government. The voters can see the capability and find out the most capable candidate and how he can serve the country and the people.
There are accusations and counter accusations as the two parties made their way into the general rounds. The healthy disclosures among the political parties are good sign of democracy and we are moving in the right direction. With healthy discourses the pledges of the political parties are made clearer and the voters can decide to whom to vote.
But lately it has been observed the some of the candidates has been taking up the issues with the other party’s manifestos and pledges. The main purpose of the candidates and the party now is to get their pledges to the people and if we talk about other parties pledges the main issues seems diluted and our sole purpose is defeated . This may not be healthy is a small society like ours.
The main purpose of election is to elect the right person who can serve the people and the nation and look for the future well being and the security of our nation. However by the way our elections are going we just fear of it causing disharmony and fear in our closed netted society.
As Bhutanese we may come across these obstacles and keeping in mind the unity and the security of the country we must move ahead.
