Subject: EC decision disturbing
Oct 21 2015 07:50 PM

Two days after the preliminary election the EC decided only the top two candidates would go forth to the final election. In this case, that's Lobsang Sangay and Penpa Tsering. Lukar Jam placed a third.

It seems arbitrary for the EC to decide only 2 candidates can stand in the general election when last time they allowed three. The Charter allows for up to 6 candidates to run for Sikyong. Why can't all 5 candidates be in the general election? Was this decision deliberately made to exclude the only pro-Rangzen candidate, Lukar Jam?

Voters should have the right to vote for any of the five current candidates in the general election. It's undemocratic to prevent the other three candidates to continue their campaign. Let the voters decide who should be Sikyong, not the Election Commission.
