In selecting new UN secretary-general, leadership most important factor

image of In selecting new UN secretary-general, leadership most important factor

This year’s UN agenda will be dominated by the choice of the next secretary- general who, under the convention of regional rotation, should be Asian. Choosing the best available candidate is a good principle, like the one that would impose two-term restrictions on chief executives of all international organizations (which the UN University follows). Washington’s and London’s pursuit of this noble course would have been more credible if the same principle had been followed in choosing the World Bank and International Monetary Fund chiefs instead of a cosy gentlemen’s agreement that sees these divided between Americans and Europeans.
