It should be conceded that Bhutan as a young democracy is still on a learning curve and mistakes do happen. There will be teething problems. Except for the entrenched bureaucrats all the rest involved in the administration directly and indirectly like the politicians, parliamentarians, ministers and the National Council members could make mistakes and these should be taken in the stride.

While attending the BIMSTEC Conference in Myanmar, Prime Minister Koirala took the opportunity to speak to his Bhutanese counterpart on the still "unresolved" issue of the Bhutanese refugees in Nepal.
This happened when both leaders were participating in the Third Summit of Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical ad Economic Cooperation.

Normally, in a country where population figures are compiled and extrapolated on two different sets of data, discrepancies are bound to arise. But if the discrepancy is over 15 percent and that too in a country that is sensitive to "ethnic balance" like Bhutan, there should be cause for worry as one would not wish another round of ethnic cleansing, when the current refugee problem is almost coming to an end.

Though still a few months away, Bhutan is in the grip of the "election fever." Four new political parties are likely to join the fray. Even candidates for some of the constituencies are being discussed in the media.
What should be worrying the government is not about democracy which is taking deep roots, but the economy that still appears to be in trouble.
