Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has reacted to the United States seeming desire to back her opponent, Myung-Hee, after rejecting her as the consensus candidate for appointment as new Director-General of the World Trade Organization.
The Hopeful DG WTO tweeted:
”Happy for the success & continued progress of our @wto DG bid. Very humbled to be declared the candidate with the largest, broadest support among members & most likely to attract consensus. We move on to the next step on Nov 9, despite hiccups. We’re keeping the positivity going!”
Okonjo-Iweala emerged the new WTO Director-General. However, the United States representative at World Trade Organization insists that South Korea’s candidate remained a contender and that Washington will not accept Okonjo-Iweala as director-general.
