Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

"[T]his will be the principal site for documents, laws, rules and regulations, reports, and detailed statistics for the projected parliamentary elections to be held in Bhutan in early 2008 (the date as not yet been announced but will be before mid-2008, as 'the new parliament' is to have the task of approving Bhutan's Tenth Five-Year Plan at that time (the Ninth FYP has been extended by one year to end in June 2008).

The Election Commission website at present contains a translation of King Jigme Singye Wangchuck's kasho establishing the Commission (in accordance with the 2nd public draft of Bhutan's proposed constitution), a proposed organisation chart for the Commission, and an interactive map of Bhutan and its districts which will be the basis for more detailed data (eg electoral district boundaries) in the months to come. Citizens, when registered on the forthcoming electoral roll, will also be able to check the roll on-line.

A formal Electoral Act is to be discussed and adopted by Bhutan's National Assembly at its projected 86th session in November 2006. - bcs."
