DNT confirms Dr Lotay Tshering as its PM nominee

The Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa (DNT) has confirmed its President Dr Lotay Tshering as the prime minister nominee. The party’s executive committee decided this today. The DNT is, however, yet to decide on the members of the cabinet. The DNT’s General Secretary said the cabinet members would be decided only after the prime minister nominee receives Dakyen from His Majesty The King as per the Constitution. This will happen once the 10-day election petition period ends. A news release from DNT says in keeping with Article 17 of the Constitution, the prime minister nominee will recommend a list of ministerial candidates only after receiving Dakyen from His Majesty The King. Article 17 of the Constitution says the Druk Gyalpo shall confer Dakyen to the leader or nominee of the party, which wins majority of seats in the National Assembly, as the prime minister. Section three of the same article states that the Druk Gyalpo shall appoint ministers from among the members of the National Assembly on the recommendation of the prime pinister, or shall remove a minister on the advice of the prime minister.
