UNSG Candidates Forum Postponed

Developments over the last several days have prompted the organizers and moderator of the September 26th Candidates Forum to postpone the event.

The coup in Thailand yesterday and what appears to be a continously evolving field of candidates – Vike-Freiberga’s in, as appears is Ghani, but Surakiart’s still uncertain – prompted last-minute schedule changes and the organizers’ decision. These considerations precluded the Forum from fulfilling its function-providing the public with a comprehensive look at the views of candidates being formally considered by the UN Security Council. 

Decisions on the event’s rescheduling will take place once a clearer picture of the field of candidates is available following the September 28th straw poll.
