Dharamsala/Shimla: Thousands of Tibetans across the world today voted to elect the prime minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile, an exercise that may usher in a transition in the community’s leadership following the Dalai Lama’s “flat refusal” to reconsider his decision to retire as its political head.

“As many as 83,399 exiled Tibetan settled in India, Nepal, Bhutan, the United States, European countries, Australia, Japan, Russia and other countries were eligible to exercise their franchise to elect the Prime minister and 43 members of Tibetan Parliament-in-exile,” Jamphel Choesang, chief election commissioner, said.
