Would you like to nominate a candidate? Please do so by posting your nominee’s name, city and a brief bio if possible in the comment box below.
Any current North American Tibetan resident who is over 25 years old and holds a Green Book is eligible to run for the Chitue elections. However, please keep in mind that the type of candidates being encouraged to run by this site are those that bring a diverse set of skills and people with experience in various sectors in North America – government, business, nonprofit.
While the candidate needn’t be an expert in Tibetan, he or she should have some speaking, reading or writing abilities. This is a requirement since the Parliament sessions are all conducted in Tibetan.
Our representative should be able to promote our community’s interest effectively to a broad section of the society in North America. Simply having experience of working in Dharamsala is (in this site’s opinion) inadequate.
