(TibetanReview.net, Jun19’19) – The 17th General Body Meeting of the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) concluded at Dharamshala on Jun 17 with the election of Mr Gonpo Dhondup as its new President for the next three years. Mr Lobsang Tsering is the new Vice-President while Mr Sonam Tsering is the new General Secretary.

Gonpo Dhondup is president of Delhi (Rohini) Regional Tibetan Youth Congress (RTYC). Lobsang Tsering is Vice-President of Bhandara RTYC while Sonam Tsering is a former executive committee member of Delhi (Rohini) RTYC.

A total of 150 delegates from 45 regional chapters took part in the meeting which elected a new Central Executive (CENTREX) committee of seven.

The other CENTREX members are Mr Penpa Tsering, Organization Secretary of the outgoing CENTREX; Ms Tenzin Lhamo, executive committee member of Chandigarh RTYC; Yeshe Chosang, President of Kathmandu RTYC; and Mr Tsewang Rabgay, President of another RTYC.

TYC is the largest grassroot Tibetan organization and campaigns for the restoration of Tibet’s independence, a stand which is at variance with that of the Tibetan administration in exile which only seeks autonomy for an undivided Tibet under Chinese sovereignty

Founded in 1970, TYC currently has a membership of 30,000.
