Who will lead the United Nations? A Historic Audition for UN Chief Kicks Off

The UN General Assembly on Tuesday kicked off a three-day audition with eight candidates for the position of next UN Secretary-general.

In practice, the 15-member Security Council, in particular its five permanent members, will make the final choice and send a single candidate to the General Assembly for approval.
