Tibetan Parliament urges Dalai Lama not to retire

The Tibetan parliament-in-exile is debating the Dalai Lama`s decision to give up his political role, with some members pleading for the Buddhist holy man to reconsider.



Dharmsala: The Tibetan parliament-in-exile is debating the Dalai Lama`s decision to give up his political role, with some members pleading for the Buddhist holy man to reconsider.
Tibetan prime minister-in-exile Samdhong Rinpoche says about one-third of the 43 members who participated in the debate proposed that the Nobel peace laureate remain as leader.

He said, ``It is very likely that parliament will not accept his suggestion to step down.``

Last week, the Dalai Lama said he would give up his political role in the Tibetan government-in-exile and shift that power to an elected representative.
He asked the parliament-in-exile to amend the constitution to allow this to happen in the current session, which ends March 25.
