It Looks Like a Lock for Tedros

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is poised to serve a second term as the WHO chief—he’s the sole nominee for the top job, according to Western diplomats.
Among the supporters: France, Germany and other EU members, plus 3 African countries—Botswana, Kenya and Rwanda.
Conspicuously silent:

  • Ethiopia, Tedros’s home country, which declined to nominate Tedros again because of tensions with him over the conflict in Tigray in the country’s north. 
  • The US—although relations with Tedros have warmed under President Biden.

The election will take place during the World Health Assembly next May.
