The Tibetan parliament-in-exile says it will discuss dividing the Dalai Lama's political power among three members of the assembly.
Parliament member Dawa Tsering says a special committee presented a report recommending the changes Wednesday.
He says the report suggests distributing the Dalai Lama's power among the prime minister, parliament's chairman and deputy chairman. Such changes would require constitutional amendments.
Tsering says the assembly will discuss the report Thursday and may seek a referendum on the changes.
The parliamentary session is to end Friday.
The Dalai Lama has insisted on shifting his political power to elected officials, though he remains the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism.
