New Head of UN Named… Announces Plan to Change American Communities
After a series of straw poll votes, the United Nations Security Council recently agreed upon a candidate to become the next secretary-general of the international body, taking the place of outgoing secretary Ban Ki-Moon, who has neared the end of his second five-year term.
According to CNN, that candidate was former Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Guterres, who was the head of the Socialist Party there and led the country from 1995 – 2002 before heading up the U.N.’s refugee agency as the High Commissioner of Refugees for 10 years.
Though Guterres has yet to be confirmed by a vote of the entire General Assembly, it was expected that the vote will be a mere formality, leaving Guterres free to get to work immediately, which it appears he has already done, at least in regard to the international refugee problem.
