Dharamsala: The Tibetan Parliament in-exile on Tuesday constituted a three-member high power committee after the Dalai Lama refused to relent his decision of giving up political power.

The committee which will be headed by the Prime Minister will also include Deputy Speaker of the House and an MP, to resolve the issue.

“The committee shall give its report on Wednesday, and the parliament shall discuss the matter later," said MP Dhawa Tsering.

The Tibetan Parliament discussed ways in Mecleodganj to amend the constitution to facilitate the transfer of Dalai Lama’s political power to an elected leader.

“There would be no further discussion on the Dalai Lama's decision to resign,” a spokesperson of the Tibetan parliament said.

The Dalai Lama announced his political retirement on March 14 after which the Tibetan parliament-in-exile passed a resolution on March 18, urging him to reconsider decision.
