A Bhutanese guard frisks voters at a polling station in Phuentisiling constituency, some 45 Kms from the Indo-Bhutan border, 31 December 2007. The isolated Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan held its first parliamentary elections aimed at transforming the country from absolute monarchy to constitutional democracy. “Polling has begun in 15 districts with the response quite enthusiastic. This is a historic moment for all of us,” Bhutan’s chief election commissioner, Dasho Kunzang Wangdi, said by telephone from the capital Thimphu.
