The main force of the 18th Army arrived in Lhasa, under the command of Zhang Guohua, who was the senior commander of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) forces in Tibet. The PLA leaders in Lhasa had numerous discussions about the ceremony, and meetings about protocol with the Dalai Lama's lord chamberlain. Fan Ming's arrival in Lhasa created problems with the Tibetan government. The new Tibet Work Committee consisted of eleven officials, eight from the Southwest Bureau and three from the Northwest Bureau. However, the Northwest Bureau officials were given important posts and ended up having substantial power in day-to-day work activities. The Tibetan government was still in power, and there was no talk of changing it. Despite some growing uneasiness, especially about the attitude of Fan Ming and the Northwest troops, Phüntso Wangye was pleased with the way things were going.
