Yesterday, the United Nations Security Council approved the appointment of Antonio Guterres, 72, as the United Nations Secretariat for a second term between 2022 and 2026.
The former Portuguese Prime Minister has held the General Secretariat of the International Organization since January 2017, and no other candidate competed with him for the second term, and about 10 individual nominations were not approved because they did not enjoy the support of any of the 193 member states of the organization.
In a closed session, the Security Council, the main body in the appointment process, unanimously recommended the United Nations Secretariat to extend Guterres, according to the Estonian ambassador, Sven Jorgensen, who holds the council’s rotating presidency, and official confirmation from the General Assembly is expected soon.
Guterres will have to put together a battle plan against all the erupting crises.
