On March 20th, 2011 as Tibetans head to the polling booths,
Fellow Tibetans, let us remember to vote for the best of the best.
For Tibet needs only the best of the best at this critical time in our history.

At this critical time in Tibet’s history,
When Tibetans ponder various options for Tibet’s future,
Tibet does not need a Katri who has neither new ideas nor strategy.
Tibet does not need a Katri who advocates waiting for the opportunity.
Tibet needs a Katri who wants to “refocus, re-establish and redouble” our effort to free Tibet.
Tibet needs the best of the best.
Tibet Needs Tethong.

At this critical time in Tibet’s history,
When His Holiness is considering retirement from his ceremonial roles,
And behind the Himalayas, the Han dragon awaits Tibet’s sunset.
Tibet does not need a Katri who has never served the TGIE.
Tibet needs an accomplished leader who has served with dedication, integrity and distinction.
Tibet needs the best of the best.
Tibet Needs Tethong.

At this critical time in Tibet’s history,
When Tibet is no longer only a “Shangri-La.”
Where presidents and parliaments welcome His Holiness.
And governments and legislatures pass resolutions in support of Tibet.
Tibet does not need a Katri who only talks the talk.
Tibet needs a Katri who can take the issue of Tibet to the next level.
And one who is no stranger to the White House and networks of Tibet support groups.
Tibet needs the best of the best.
Tibet needs Tethong.

At this critical time in Tibet’s history,
When Tibet has embraced the 21st century and surges forward.
Tibet does not need a Katri who promises to play it safe and sure.
Tibet does not need a Katri who talks change but has not changed a thing in the TGIE.
Tibet needs a Katri who has time and again delivered change and has the solid foundations of the
past from which to spring forward.
Tibet needs the best of the best.
Tibet Needs Tethong.

At this critical time in Tibet’s history,
When 99% of Tibetans inside occupied-Tibet are deprived of their basic rights.
Tibetans in the free world need to stand up in unison for the survival of their race and land.
This Katri election should not be about region and religion, kudaks and kyiduks, spouses and
partners or young and old.
For this Katri will be the Katri of all six million Tibetans.
Tibet needs the best of the best.
Tibet Needs Tethong

On March 20th, 2011 as Tibetans head to the polling booths.
Fellow Tibetans, let us vote for the best of the best.
For Tibet needs only the best of the best at this critical time in our history.
Tibet needs Tethong!
