Exiled Tibetans vote in India for new leadership

Apr 11, 2021 19:10 IST | By AP

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

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

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

One of the parliamentary candidates, Lobsang Gyatso Sither, called on the younger generation to play a greater part in the political process, given the age of Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who's 85.

The results are expected be announced on 14 May.
