Kalon Tripa Election

Dear Editors,

With Lobsang Sangay widely advertising and openly strongly campaigning for Kalon Tripa, the poll numbers show that only 50% of the Tibetan populace favor him. While the poll shows 51 % of the Tibetan populace favor Tenzin Tethong despite the absence of any advertisement and official campaign from him.

What does that say about the popularity of both the candidates for Kalon Tripa? Were Tenzin Tethong to officially announce his candidacy and advertise as much as Lobsang Sangay, I feel certain that the poll will show 60% of the Tibetan populace favor Tenzin Tethong against 40% for Lobsang Sangay.
