ON June 6, Ban Ki-moon, the secretary-general (秘书长) of the United Nations (UN), asked UN members to support his request for a second five-year term as head of the organization.

And he is nearly certain to get it. According to UN officers, he has no competitors for his re-election (再次竞选).

Ban, 66, the former foreign minister (外交部长) of South Korea, took office as the head of the UN on January 1, 2007. He is the second Asian Secretary-General. Ban’s first term ends on December 31.

A Secretary-General is the spokesperson and leader of the UN. According to the UN Charter (宪章), the Security Council (安全理事会) recommends someone and the 192-nation General Assembly (联合国大会) elects him or her as the secretary-general.

In order to win his second term, Ban needs at least nine “yes” votes from the 15-nation UN Security Council. He also needs total support from the US,

Britain, France, Russia and China – the five permanent (常任的) members. The results will come out by the end of June, UN officers said.

During his term, Ban has worked hard to make climate change a top priority (优先) for governments. Also, the UN worked well in recent emergencies around the world.

Many countries have offered their support for Ban’s re-election.

“Ban has shown great talent during a time of crisis,” French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said in a statement. “We are sure that he will show those same qualities during a second term.”

Chinese UN officer Li Baodong told reporters the Asia Group welcomed Ban’s second term, saying he has shown “strong leadership” and he is a “person of action”.
