Successful European Chitue Debate
Today, the five European top-Chitue candidates took part at a relevant political debate, organized by the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) in Rikon. It was an interesting and successful event with about 250 attendees.
The TYAE organized a grand Europe Chitue Debate on Saturday, February 5th 2011 with the following top-candidates: Thupten Wangchen (Spain), Koren Chungdak (Norway), Sonam Monkhar (Switzerland), Jampa Samdho (Switzerland), Wangpo Tethong (Switzerland).
The event was divided into two parts. After a brief introduction, the debate was launched. They participants were challenged with questions on several important topics, such as internal and external political affairs, involvement of the youth in governmental affairs and topics related to society. It was a lively discussion with pure emotion and different opinions. It has become clear that the dialogue with the Chinese authorities must be resumed. Furthermore the collaboration among the different Tibetan communities must be strengthened as well as with the Tibetan government in Exile. All of the potential Chitues agreed on this. At the second part of the event, an open talk was held. It was an interactive exchange with a wide range of exciting inputs and questions raised by the public.
The debate with the Chitue-candidates took place at an important time for the Tibetans, as the elections of the next Kalon tripa and Chitues will take place on March 20th.
