WFUNA #SGStrawPoll


WFUNA #SGStrawPoll.

The process to select the next Secretary-General of the United Nations is more transparent than ever. However, the final decision to propose the next Secretary-General to the UN General Assembly still rests with the 15 members of the UN Security Council.

To trim the field of candidates down from 12 to 1, Council members will hold a series of secret “straw-poll ballots” to informally collect general feelings on the candidates.

The first straw poll will take place behind closed doors on Thursday 21 July, when Council members will vote to either “encourage,” “discourage,” or offer “no opinion” for each candidate.

Will the opinion of the Security Council match public opinion? 

Here’s your chance to weigh-in on the process via WFUNA’s Public Straw Poll.

Simply choose Encourage, Discourage, or No Opinion to register your vote for each candidate. Then make your prediction for the overall position of the Security Council on each of the 12 candidates.

The individual responses to this survey are anonymous, but overall data will be released on Friday 22 July on the WFUNA website and via Twitter: @WFUNA

Share your thoughts on your favorite candidates via Twitter by using #SGStrawPoll followed by the Twitter handle or name of the candidate.

To find out about each candidate and learn more about the process, visit the UN PGA Office website.

*** Disclaimer: WFUNA does not support or endorse any specific candidate. ***
