DHARAMSHALA, September 27: In accordance with the Charter of the Tibetans in exile, Tashi Namgyal was sworn in as the Member of Parliament from North America, Monday here in the exile seat of Dharamshala.

Namgyal who came third in the March general elections filled in the seat vacated by Dicki Chhoyang, who was unanimously elected as a member of the 14th cabinet during the ongoing monsoon session of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile.

Namgyal had secured the required 33 per cent of the votes casted by North American Tibetans and had come third after Dicki Chhoyang and sitting parliamentarian Norbu Tsering.

Namgyal took the oath of office in front of all the parliamentarians and cabinet members.

"I on behalf of the parliament heartily welcome Tashi Namgyal as a member of parliament from North America," said Penpa Tsering, the speaker of the Tibetan parliament in exile.

Upon being elected to the 15th Parliament, Namgyal, in a note said that he will “work closely with fellow North American MP, Norbu Tsering to further the cause of Tibet in general and the interest of Tibetans in North America.”

"We have more responsibilities than ever before in view of His Holiness’s devolution of political power to the elected representatives," said Namgyal.

“I hope I will be able to shoulder this onerous task.”
