Right to Information for Bhutan

Section 3 of Article 7 of our Constitution clearly states that a Bhutanese citizen shall have the right to information.

The MOIC had organized a workshop on the topic with particpants from a host of agencies and chaired by the Secretary of MOIC. Since then there has been no news and developments on the matter. The 5th session of the Parliament is approaching and I hope that we can and will be taking it up this session. Governance is at the very heart of democracy and the support and political of the Government was visible with the initiative of the exercise but one may get skecptical if it takes too long for it to come into public domain.

I have now set up a page for dessimination and sensitization on the matter.
