European Chitue Initiative launched

In 2nd ETC, Democracy, Uncategorized on August 6, 2010 at 1:08 pm

The 2nd ETC Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the launch of European Chitue Initiative. This is an initiative to engage in a pre-election search for eligible parliamentary candidates to run for the office in the upcoming Tibetan Parliamentary preliminary elections in October 2010 and final elections in March 2011.

The role of the next parliamentary representatives from Europe is of tremendous importance as the number of Tibetans living in Europe is on the rise today.  According to the Tibetan charter in exile, Tibetans living in Europe can elect two representatives.

“I believe that it is important that individuals committed to the Tibetan issue combined with a good understanding of the European system represent Tibetans living in Europe” said Thupten Gyatso, Chairperson of the 2nd ETC Organizing Committee which started this initiative.
