Tibetans are going to elect their Sekongay (head of exiled government) for 17th parliament

  • China may risk instability in its own country, India may support US policy
  • 150 candidates in the fray for 45 seats, final results by May

China’s expansionism policy may suffer a major setback. Two days ago, the US Parliament passed the Tibet Policy and Support Act and now the process of electing the exiled government leader in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh has started from Sunday. Global observers have also been deployed for this. In fact, China has always feared that the Dalai Lama and India, considered the most important in Tibet, can bring instability in China.

Now that China is already under suspicion due to Corona infection, other countries can also become aggressive against it for any reason. Especially if India supports America, it can open a big front against China. Here, Tibetans are going to elect their Sikayong (head of the exiled government) for the 17th parliament. Voting has been done in Dharamshala earlier also. About 80 thousand exiled Tibetans will vote. 55,683 voters are registered in India and the remaining 24,014 voters are registered in many countries including Australia, Canada and Brazil.

150 candidates are in the fray for 45 seats of Parliament. Of these, 10 seats are for the territories of Tibet. Here, the US has passed the Tibetan Policy and Support Law. This paves the way for Tibetans’ right to choose their religious leader (the next Dalai Lama). If China impedes it, then America can take any action against China with the consent of other countries, or impose strict economic restrictions on it.

Headquarters of Tibet’s exiled parliament in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh
It is in Dharamsala, Himachal. The Director of Tibet Policy Institute, Tenzin Lexche, said that in any democratic country, elections are considered one of the fundamental rights and duties of its citizens. This election is also important for Tibetans. It has 10–10 representatives from the three traditional provinces of Tibet — Yu-Tsang, Dhoté and Dhomi. Two seats are reserved for women.
