Dharamsala: Following the Dalai Lama`s
decision to relinquish political power, the Tibetan
parliament-in-exile on Monday constituted a three-member
high-power committee to be headed by the prime minister to
resolve the issue.

Other members of the committee are the deputy speaker
of the house and an MP.

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

The Tibetan parliament today discussed ways in
Mcleodganj 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.
