The Health Secretary of the Central Tibetan Administration, Tsegyal Chukya Dranyi, has been appointed as the new Cabinet (Kashag) Secretary effective Monday.

Dranyi was appointed following the retirement of his predecessor Topgyal Tsering, who has been serving in the post since June 2016. Topgyal has served CTA since 1977. His appointment as a minister has been blocked by the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission on technical grounds.

“I feel deeply humbled and honoured to be appointed as the Cabinet Secretary. The Cabinet has reposed trust and hope on me. I will carry out my duties faithfully to the best of my ability,” Dranyi said.

Dranyi has served for 25 years at CTA, holding various posts. Among them were two terms as Health Secretary, and one term as Secretary of the Department of Religion and Culture.
