CNN has published an article speculating that the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, might be a strong contender for the next Secretary General of the United Nations.
The article reports that, when asked, Mottley gave a positive response and insiders suggest she is a likely front-runner.
While the selection process is not until 2026, many believe that the next UN leader will come from the Latin America and Caribbean region and some advocate for a female candidate.
Mottley is one of several names being discussed as a potential candidate. The article includes an interview with Mottley conducted by Farih Zacharia, who regularly interviews global figures.
CNN also quotes Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, who says he would support Mottley if she chose to campaign.
