Choosing the UN Secretary General

Irina Bokova


Irina Bokova, UNESCO Bulgarian general director, is one of the candidates to succeed Ban Ki Moon

With Ban Ki Moon set to stand down at the end of this year, a group calling itself "1 for 7 billion" has launched a campaign to make the selection process for his successor more transparent.
