PDP president resigns, signals for single-party-system

Published on Dec 24 2008 // Main News
Thimphu, December 24: Due to acute financial pressure that the party has been facing, the president of People's Democratic Party (PDP), Sangay Ngedup, submitted his resignation to the Election Commission.

Though the actual date of submission was not disclosed, a PDP cadre has confirmed of his resignation.

The state bank earlier had informed that it was going to auction Ngedup's land in Thimphu since the party has more than 20 million overdraft loan.

There are unconfirmed reports that a number of party cadres from PDP also resigned from their portfolios. If similar trend continues, Bhutan will have a single political party for practicing so called constitution democracy. Bhutan News Service
