Dharamshala: - The General Secretary of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) has on May 2nd issued a statement welcoming the election of Dr. Lobsang Sangay to the Tibetan Premiership and saying that "the UNPO wishes Dr. Sangay every success in the many challenges that will lie ahead and readily offers its support to help realize the goals and ambitions of the Tibetan people which he and the CTA represent."

During the election, the UNPO joined the International Network of Parliamentarians on Tibet (INPaT) election observation mission that monitored the election process across the world. This participation "represented the latest in two decades of collaboration" as Tibet had a founding role when the UNPO was established in 1991.

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent, and democratic membership organisation. Its members are indigenous peoples, minorities, and unrecognised or occupied territories who have joined together to protect and promote their human and cultural rights, to preserve their environments, and to find nonviolent solutions to conflicts which affect them. Among its members are minorities like the Kurds of Iran and Iraq, the Hmong people of SE Asia and Taiwan.
