tibet-parliament-meeting-2016Dharamshala – The last session of the Tibetan Parliaments began on Monday, March 21st. Speaker of Parliament and Sikyong candidate Penpa Tsering urged members of the session to refrain from the previous day's election and instead focus on the budget for financial year 2016-17.

The first day of the session, the parliament passed a resolution mourning the deaths of Kyabjé Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, the two teen self-immolators Kalsang Wangdu and Dorjee Tsering, and Mr. Karma Choephel, an MP.

The Finance Minister, Tsering Dhundup, then presented the proposed budget of 2238 million Indian rupees and the Budget Committee Secretary Karma Yeshi broke down the budget, explaining, "compared to last year's approved budget of 2018 million rupees, it has increased this year due to implementation of new programs and policies including Tibetan Medicare System, Increment of CTA staff salary and new programs of different departments."

This final session of the current parliament will discuss and approve the budget of the Central Tibetan Administration by April 1, the final day of the session.
