Next UN General?

Ban Ki-Moon is stepping down next year, and a new Secretary-General, only the ninth in the UN’s history, will be elected this year in September by the General Assembly. The position is rotated between the major regions in the world, and the next up is Eastern Europe. There are many candidates, and already two major front-runners, both of whom are Bulgarian women. Despite the relative lack of political clout the job itself actually holds, the decision around who will lead the UN is very political. Something to keep an eye on this year!
