Empowering people for liberty, equality, and prosperity by devolving power and authority from the center to the people
The term Wangtse Chhirpel was coined by our Fourth Druk Gyalpo and was prudently implemented throughout his reign from the 1970s. The ideology of Wangtse Chhirpel lies in the belief that people know what is best for them. It believes that policymakers at the central government should only facilitate and help people organize and implement their aspirations. The principle of Wangtse Chhirpel lies in devolving power to democratic institutions as defined by the Constitution. It believes that the government should not interfere but instead facilitate governance.
