Lobsang Sangay takes oath as Tibetan PM-in-exile

Dharamsala , Mon, 08 Aug 2011 ANI

Dharamsala, Aug 8 (ANI): Lobsang Sangay was sworn in as Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile, marking a new beginning for exiled Tibetans as he takes over the political leadership of the movement from the Dalai Lama.

 

Sangay, 43, was administered the oath of office at a ceremony in the central courtyard of the main Tibetan temple, opposite the Dalai Lama's office.

 

A law scholar from Harvard University, Sangay was elected the new "Kalon Tripa" on April 27, replacing the incumbent Samdhong Rinpoche.

 

Born in Darjeeling, Sangay pursued higher studies in the US and was a senior Fellow at the Harvard Law School before being elected as the Kalon Tripa.

 

Besides pursuing law, he also organised conferences and seminars which were attended by several Chinese scholars during his 16-year stay in the US.

 

Many Tibetans have termed his swearing in as "a turning point" in the movement for sovereignty, which has been spearheaded by the Dalai Lama, since decades. (ANI)
