The Dalai Lama has formally relinquished his political and administrative powers, a spokesman said Tuesday, CNN informs. The Tibetan spiritual leader approved amendments to the exiled constitution to enable him to devolve his political responsibilities into the community’s elected leadership and judiciary, according to officials. Lobsang Choedak, a spokesman for the exiled Tibetan government, said the changes were carried out during a three-day session of its parliament in the Himalayan town of Dharamsala, India. The Dalai Lama approved them Sunday. Lobsang Sangay, who was elected head of Tibet’s government-in-exile last month, now fills the shoes of the Dalai Lama as “head of state,” Choedak said.
