PDP victorious in Bhutan General Assembly polls
Led by Tshering Tobgay, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has registered their victory in the polls to the General Assembly of Bhutan. It won 32 out of 47 seats, while the outgoing party, the Druk Phuensum Tshogpa (DPT), managed to retain the remaining seats in the election.
The focus of the PDP’s election campaign in the last few days was the “strained India-Bhutan relations”- where it laid the blame for withdrawal of subsidy on LPG and kerosene among other things, on the mishandling by the DPT.
