On Tuesday, the 20th of October 2015, two days after the Tibetan exile leader polls had closed, the Tibetan Exile Election Commission announced on Tibet.net that a new rule had been enacted whereby the second and final stage ballot would be limited to just two candidates, unless the third candidate came within 20% of the vote total of the second candidate.  The date of the announcement in all the reports was Tuesday 20, October.

This ‘move’ ruled out any chance of the sole Independence candidate, Lukar Jam, from participating in the final round of the election process. Formalising the historically significant event whereby Tibetans in exile were forbidden from voting for a leader who supports the sovereignty and political independence of Tibet.
