Go the dis­tance

My fam­ily has been sup­port­ive say­ing while it’s im­por­tant to stay with fam­ily, this was a greater pur­pose, that of serv­ing the na­tion.”

K arma Gyelt­shen is a man who can fit eas­ily in any con­ver­sa­tion and with any group. It is un­likely for him to feel ‘out of place’.

This con­fi­dence has helped him de­velop good PR with peo­ple he has met dur­ing work, or when vis­it­ing his con­stituency, in­clud­ing the taxi driver whose car he hired.

Hav­ing com­pleted his Masters pro­gramme re­cently, Karma Gyelt­shen and his fam­ily still lives in Aus­tralia but he has been trav­el­ing back and forth for the up­com­ing elec­tions.

His fam­ily has been sup­port­ive. “While it’s im­por­tant to stay with them, this is for a greater pur­pose, that of serv­ing the na­tion,” he said. “I have their bless­ings.”

Karma Gyelt­shen re­signed from STCBL in 2012 af­ter work­ing with the com­pany for over two decades, to stand for Na­tional Coun­cil elec­tions. He then started a con­sul­tancy firm and later went to Aus­tralia for his Masters De­gree pro­gram.

“The el­ders in my com­mu­nity wanted me to stand for coun­cil elec­tions again, but I dis­closed to them that I was in­ter­ested in the other elec­tion,” he said, adding that it was Na­tional Assem­bly which has the ex­ec­u­tive power.

“DNT’s vi­sion of Nar­row­ing the Gap in var­i­ous sec­tors is favourable for my com­mu­nity,” he said, adding that the party was also solid be­cause of the rep­re­sen­ta­tion it had in terms of age and pro­fes­sion.
