The Election for the Head of WTO Postponed


The election for the president of the World Trade Organization (WTO), scheduled for October 28, has been postponed for lack of consensus. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala will have to wait a few more days.

It’s obvious that meeting of heads of delegations of member countries, organized on October 28 in Geneva, failed to elect the president of the large trade organization.

The United States is also hell bent to recognize the performance of the Nigerian candidate, even though she has the support of the European Union and all the member countries of the EU.

The election has been postponed until November 9 due to United States reluctance to endorse her.

The US is the only country to have officially supported the South Korean Yoo Myung-hee during this third and final round.

But given the flawlwsss record of the Nigerian, her appointment can only be “postponed”.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, 66, former number two at the World Bank and minister on multiple occasions in Nigeria, still has every opportunity of being elected president of the WTO if one is to compare her performance to those of her rival.
