7 June 2016 (UN News): Two more candidates for the position of the next United Nations Secretary-General were heard Tuesday, answering questions on how they would promote sustainable development, improve efforts to create peace, protect human rights, and deal with huge humanitarian catastrophes should they be selected to lead the 193-member Organization.

In April, nine candidates presented their views to the global community in open dialogues.

Strong, independent and courageous

Miroslav Lajčák is the Minister for Foreign and European Affairs of Slovakia.

Susana Malcorra, is currently the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Argentina and has held several positions within the United Nations, most recently as Chef de Cabinet.

Transparent process

Each candidate will have a televised and webcast two-hour timeslot, starting with a short oral presentation. Representatives from Member States will then ask questions, followed by the President of the General Assembly, who will ask a few of the more than 1,000 questions submitted by the general public on social media under the hashtag #UNSGcandidates.

Following their sessions, each candidate will have the opportunity to speak with the press. The events can be followed live on UN WebTV.
