Subject: Only TYC members should vote

My understanding is that many of the local Tibetans who showed up at this meeting were not actually TYC members. If that's true, then their votes should be discounted. Only TYC members have a vote on TYC business.

In the future TYC should make sure only TYC members participate in regional elections or meetings.

Subject: TYC has authority to decide membership
Dec 28 2015 09:21 PM

As a private NGO, TYC has the right to decide its own membership/chapter criteria. In this case, if any TYC member decides not to support Rangzen, he/she can be expelled. It would be the same if a member of an Ume Lam group decided to unilaterally support Rangzen, he/she could be expelled.

Also, TYC elections should be for only TYC members. In recent RTYC NY/NJ elections, all Tibetans could vote, not just TYC. That's how the recent leadership got elected & were able to shift RTYC to Ume Lam.

The ex-RTYC leadership should respect the decision of TYC Centrex & not try to tear apart the community. They can form their own Ume Lam organization. But TYC Centrex decides the membership criteria for all TYC members.
