9 September 2016 - Positive step towards selection of next Secretary-General
Selection of the next UN Secretary-General - Remarks to the press by Mr François Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations - 9 September 2016
This fourth straw poll was like the others before, very useful. It helps all the members of the Security Council moving forward the selection process of the next Secretary-General, by clarifying even more the situation among the different candidates. So this is a positive step, in line with what the straw polls are all about : get a candidate that the Security Council can recommend to the General Assembly in the next few weeks.
