I thank the election monitoring organizations for their assistance in monitoring the recent preliminary exile elections for TPIE & Sikyong. I agree w/ some of their comments. In particular, the requirement to have a fully-paid Green Book in order to exercise our fundamental right to vote. This requirement not only violates int'l human rights norms but also discriminates against Tibetans who are too poor to pay or who live in areas where there is no Tibetan Association to collect Green Book dues. At the very least there should be way to pay one's Green Book dues online rather than travel to a distance to pay in person. It's the 21st Century & we are still using an 19th century procedure.

Also we should not restrict the rights of independent Tibetan NGOs to endorse candidates. This is a violation of free speech under the Tibetan Charter.

Absolutely right that Danglang Chatral book should not be one the requirements of voting rights. Since this is voluntary contribution and one shoould not bar from voting. I agree 100% with Election Watchdog. This is an undemocratic way or feudalistic system of punishing voters.
Thank you to the Delegations for bringing this issue. Hope CTA will change this immediately.
