    Tothop Tsang, from USA, says:on 7 May 2021 at 1:45 am

    Katak Tulku must be a fake because he had a wife, that is so paratactic to be a tulku. Real trulku does not have wife or female partner.
    PT is not my cup of tea, but he is the only person we got here to lead us. Tsang white Hair Kaldor does not have any sense of direction in his policies. To me he is like a western leisure-seeker who just want to be a voluntary language teacher in Dharamshala. I don’t feel his urgency of being a Tibetan whose land and people are vanishing. It is so painful to listen to Kaldor’s words, he actually says nothing, just circling around. On the other hand, whether we like it or not, PT to me, seemed like a Tibetan who really understands the situation of Tibet and has a will and strength to lead us.
    Moreover, if you are older than 18, you are damn responsible for your problem, you cannot point fingers on others. Bill Clinton has women’s issues because he is so handsome. Obama had smoking issue but he is one of most known leaders in the world. PT drinks, so what?? he is not a monk, even iron monks drink and sleep with Chinese ladies. PT is not here to be a monk but to be a leader. So-called lamas and Trulkus are deceivably mislead people, but we are so hush silent because they are our phayul Chikpa. Honestly, apart from the HHDL, and very, very few people, who has not made mistakes in their lives? virtually, no one. If PT is guilty as they claimed, he must be in prison.

    people who feel doomed for PT la won the election by majority, PT la is only one year older than Kaydor la, so it shows how unfair you are towards PT la!!!
    Some supporters are just selfish to see only their candidate win by ignoring the wish of majority !!!
    they keep defaming PT la in every possible way but this is good as all the bad omens (Barches) of PT la are taken by the false accusers, so this is good for PT la. Thank you Barche takers.

    Congratulations to our upcoming Sikyong Penpa Tsering la!

    Majority of the Tibetans have chosen you as our leader, our best wishes and prayers for your happy Sikyong, healthy, unity and success in all your work.

    Our prayers to Palden Lhamo and Nechung to help stop those who keep spreading edited videos of PT la like the same way they did to Gyari Dolma la !!

    There are several Tibetan women like tsewang lhadon ex-director of human rights desk in toronto, long chenpa tsering lhamo sesung in switzerland and few others who are talking in lhasa dialect but they have played such a criminal act to defame PT la, they will be remembered in our campaign history of Tibet!

    Anyway, please live kathak Tulku’s soul in peace. For money you don’t care of his soul, his soul must be having tough time. I really feel sorry for him, om ma ni pad me huhm.

    Some ex-monks like tenzin luntok from canada and his friends who support kaydor la are so unbuddhist that they forget that they will get back all they did to others (KARMA), and I wonder what they learned in Buddhism! However, this is Karma’s job, I will leave it to him.

    Based on the tabulation of results, another indicator is the # of Tibetans who contribute towards the Green book, since it’s required in order to vote. I know it’s not exact correlation, but can draw a rough conclusion.

    I can see certain cities in North America that I am shocked the # of those who have voted don’t reflected the # of Tibetan population. Some could be in the factor of 4 to 5 times of those who have voted to the Tibetan population.

    Some are definitely pulling the punches above their weight class. Eg I see Mundgod and Bylakuppe, I can see most of our esteemed clergy are definitely engaged and many have voted. Also I am shocked to see Belgium has more #s who have voted than Toronto, NYC (excluding New Jersey) and Switzerland.

    Congrats to those who voted and demonstrated the democratic rights that HH had farsightedly envisioned and are contributing towards the green book.

    We all should be proud of our election process and be thankful to His Holiness The Dalai Lama for His democratic vision in preparing us as good and responsible citizens of Tibet. I am profoundly pleased to see how our democracy as evolved so far.

    Missed Gyari Dolma la. We campaigned hard for her and she left without proper explanation. Just gave a way for Yesterday born child Kaydor being Khampa. She didn’t even know we are U-tsang working for her. G Dolma la you disappointed us.

    I am not Khampa and i don’t care if the Syikong is Khampa as long as we choose the best. We need a President like Kaydor and not a drunken master with no vision but the same old fashion politics.

    Thanks for the great work!

    One quick question:

    Does Bylakuppe votes include that of Sera, Namdoling, Tashi Lhunpo monasteries? and does Mundgod votes include Drepung, Gaden?
    And where do votes of other major monasteries like Gyutoe, Gyumey, Sherabling, Dzongsar, etc. count?

    Thank you!

      Shame on Ladakh Election Commissioner Tseten Wangchuk for buying the voters by giving money!
      Kaydor supporters have collected the money from some supporters. Although He will not win but this false action to gain votes will be remembered forever.

      Kaydor supporters were given huge sum to organize the campaign, showing false videos, audios etc. they gave money and gifts to the people and asked them to vote!
      kaydor group has paid to organize the talk venue drinks and campaign, they have plenty of money to spent lavishly…
      now you can see the results impossible with normal people.

    Lobsang Sangay is from Darjeeling… kaydor studied in Kalimpong but I am sure they both lost in their own place even before 5 yrs LS lost. Forget about north east, in Dharamshala itself Lobsang sangay n kaydor loses and PT wins. Inside CTA election itself PT won before 5 yrs also and today also sure to win. Kaydor voters are all khampa phayul chikpa only.

      Agreed
      I am from Darjeeling and those who are supporting kaydor are only khampas
      Shame that LS in his term didn’t win from his own hometown
      I hope this time PenpaTseringla wins
      People have become more aware of their deeds and corruption
      We never supported them

    Being born and brought up within the exile Tibetan community and serving back to Tibetan community makes it even harder to think of and get rid of from this kind of such shameful act we see in our community, the so called regionalism.
    Many like me, born and brought up in exile are seriously being emotionally bullied by such act and confused of seeing such a desperate people who are only getting out simply to hold the power in the governance and rule within the emotions of an individual.
    I just would like to wish Long Live His Holiness The Dalai Lama. May every struggle be solved, and may soon we can return back to our motherland holding our hands together.

    This tibetan election, I was soo disappointed at people for having such a chokshen towards its own phayul. i have seriously had enough of them. They tried their level best to manipulate the not so regionalistic people. I am shocked at some khampa monks here. These people actually don’t care about Tibet. All they want is someone from their phayul chikpa to be Sikyong. They don’t care if the person is worth the seat or not. i can guarantee even if that person is a murderer they will vote and support them coz he is “phayul chikpa”. Forget about khampa, amdo and utsang coz you are Tibetan first. If this kinda phayul shengo continues I can tell you, tibet will never progress. It will be wasted like the previous 10 years. Only his holiness age turned from 75 to 85, and nothing else. Please think about him, think about tibetans inside and outside tibet. You can be selfish and always have shengo. Shame on you to such people and monks. I have seen it all in this election 2022 and I’ve had enough.

    We need a leader who is experienced and can lead us, not someone who is inexperienced. Our people are blind folded with their tribe reputation. HELLO … we are all brothers and sisters ( Tibetans – country less ) yet acting so childish. Can be easily manipulated and bribed. China government might be laughing at us dividing into certain ethnicity and provinces.

      Khampas are very uneducated people. They can’t read and write. Only thing I respect about them is their loyalty. But this is about our land. Hopefully younger generation khampas can get well educated and rule Tibet someday.

        really? Sodo Rinpoche, Lobsang Sege, Ukartsang. so far who leaded Tibetans in exile. that is why you are too jealous of Khampas. ha ha. Penpa Tsering is your leader. he can not solve his own family problems. Katak Tulku was a Khampa. do you know that?
