Cancellation of Nomination

It has come to the notice of the Election Commission of Bhutan that Tsheten Dorji, a Thrompon candidate of Phuentshogling Thromde, possessed a valid trade license as of the date of filing nomination which is in contradiction to the Section 163 of the Election Act of the Kingdom of Bhutan, 2008.


Based on the documents available and the hearing conducted, it is found that the nomination documents included false declaration and the holding of a non-permissible valid business license. The Election Commission, therefore, has decided to cancel the nomination of the candidature as per Sections 29.2.2 and Section 29.4 of the Election Dispute Settlement Rules and Regulations of the Kingdom of Bhutan, 2015.


The voters of Phuentshogling Thromde are notified that the Ballot Unit of the Thrompon will have “Yes” or “No” as there is now only one Candidate contesting the post of Thrompon in Phuentshogling Thromde.
