In Tibetan community, a religious man can take the role of political leadership while the otherwise wouldn’t be possible for a layman unless he/she is an incarnated being. Ever since the Dalai Lama renounced his political leadership, the election for Sikyong (Tibetan political leader equivalent to prime minister) assumed significant attention from every nook and corner of the Tibetan community. There is no denying of the fact that the Tibetan leadership has democratically well grounded as the two most popular and powerful leaders of the decade are fighting for the prime ministerial post.
