Work experience


Anti-Corruption Commission

Private lawyer

Why should the people vote for you?

I studied and practised law. To make good laws, one must have relevant educational background since making law itself is a professional services and very technical in nature. I have all these requisite qualification and capacity to derive maximum benefit as a NC member.

Further, as a practising lawyer, I have encountered many shortcomings in existing laws which warrants immediate amendment. There is also need to come up with important new legislation, in particular Right to Jabmi Act for people of Bhutan to help avail justice. To realise that democracy is government of people, I will always meet people to consult and seek their opinion regarding any issues through constant visit in my dzongkhag. Therefore, people should assess key area of my expertise and vote for me.
