The Security Council recommended the appointment of Guterres for a second term

The question of the re-appointment of the UN Secretary-General will be decided by the General Assembly.

The UN Security Council has approved the appointment of Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for a second term.

“The Security Council, having considered the issue of a recommendation for the appointment of the UN Secretary-General, recommends that the General Assembly appoint Antonio Guterres as UN Secretary-General for a second term from January 1, 2022, to December 31, 2026,” read a communique from the President of the council, Ambassador Sven Jurgenson of Estonia.

The Board made the recommendation during a short private meeting.

Guterres’ candidacy will now be submitted to the 193-member General Assembly and is expected to be approved by a consensus vote on June 18.

However, the Security Council’s approval is crucial, as any of the five permanent members (Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States) could block the nomination.
