[RED DEMOCRATICA] It's Official: Guterres Is The Next UN Secretary-General


Big news from the UN General Assembly.

Red –

It's official: The world has its next top diplomat. Moments ago, the United Nations General Assembly voted to confirm António Guterres as the ninth UN Secretary-General. He will take office on January 1, 2017.

After the UN Security Council nominated Mr. Guterres last week, you may have heard that he spent a decade leading the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), or that he's the first former Prime Minister to be chosen for the role of Secretary-General. The position of UN Secretary-General is one of the world's toughest jobs, and Mr. Guterres has proven that he is well-equipped to lead.

Learn about the new UN Secretary-General and his vision for the future in his public statement here.

The Ninth UN Secretary-General

Mr. Guterres will become Secretary-General during an era of complex global challenges when strong UN leadership is vital to peace and progress. Interconnected issues – including swelling refugee populations, violent extremism, and persistent inequality – defy borders and demand effective collaboration. Historic 2015 agreements on climate change and sustainable development are poised to transform our world.

Mr. Guterres, a visionary leader who knows how to get things done, will help the UN realize these promises. With his demonstrated track record of bold leadership, deep commitment to international cooperation, and tireless advocacy for the rights and dignity of the most vulnerable, Mr. Guterres is capable of bringing new ambition to the UN during this critical time.

Take a moment to preview how António Guterres will drive progress as the next UN Secretary-General.

On behalf of the United Nations Foundation and this global movement for a better world, we congratulate the next Secretary-General and look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership when he gets to work next year.
