Bhutan, which first made moves to become democratic in 2007, has two registered political parties.



Bhutan has two political parties that are officially registered:

The People's Democratic Party was founded on March 24, 2007[1]. The Druk Phuensum Tshogpa came into being as a merger of the Bhutan People's United Party and the All People's Party on July 25, 2007[2]. Both of these parties have been registered with the Election Commission of Bhutan (ECB). However, the application of the Bhutan People's United Party (revived again by a breakaway faction of Druk Phuensum Tshogpa) for registration was rejected by the ECB on November 27, 2007.


The following parties are all based in exile, many of them identified as extremist or terrorist groups for their involvements in bomb blasts and militancy.

Druk National Congress was formed in exile at Kathmandu, Nepal on June 16, 1994 Instrumental in its establishment that Bhutan finally embrace democracy in 2008.
