Ebene Magazine – Exiled Tibetans vote for new leadership in India


Hundreds of Tibetans living in exile in India voted for their political leaders in the final round of elections on Sunday.

Monks and other voters wore face masks and followed social distancing measures as they entered the polling station.

They cast their votes in Dharamshala as part of an international vote by members of the Tibetan diaspora to elect a president and 45 MPs for a government in exile.

One of the parliamentary candidates, Lobsang Gyatso Sither, challenged the younger generation to play a bigger role in the political process in view of the age of the 85-year-old exiled spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama.
