UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL SELECTION





As one of the principal organs of the United Nations, the former South Korean Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon carries out the Secretary-General duty since 2007. However, the 8th UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon' term of office expires at the end of this year. In order to determine who will be new UN Secretary General, the UN Security Council did third meeting last Monday.
Results of voting in the General Assembly will be held in October in order to determine the Secretary-General and through the recommendation of the UN Security Council (UNSC ) and the approval of the United Nations, the candidate will start the duty for a five year term and secretary general can be nominated again. But the winner will still have to be agreed by the five permanent members- the US, Britain, France, Russia and China -and needs to be confirmed by the use of at least 9 members voted in favor. Otherwise Member States could prevent the election of a candidate with veto power.The Security Council began meetings to determine the new general secretary last July and it is expected to submit a candidate to the UN General Assembly until September.In this sense, the UN Security Council has made third meeting in order to determine the candidate to be sent to the General Assembly. Results of Monday’s poll supplied by diplomats showed that the former Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Guterres received the first place. While 11 members voted to encourage, 3 discourage and 1 expresses no opinion about Guterres. Hence, Guterres is seen as a strong candidate since he also took the first place in the previous poll conducted in August.Antonio Guterres had worked as Portuguese Prime Minister between 1996 and 2002 and he had conducted the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) until the end of 2015.A fourth straw poll is expected to hold in September and a consensus forms around a winner by October.
