TIBET - Lobsang Sangay, a new political leader of Tibetans in exile

"Tibet in Exile elects a new political leader," reports the site daily after the official announcement of election results on March 20. Lobsang Sangay, a Harvard graduate, became the first prime minister elected by Tibetans in exile since the Dalai Lama announced in March his withdrawal from politics.

Elected with 55% of the vote, the lawyer intends to "end the suffering of Tibetans in Tibet and obtain recognition of the dignity and identity of Tibet by the Chinese government."
