“The candidate that had the best chance of attaining a consensus of the membership is Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria. Consultations on the way fwd will start immediately,” WTO Spokesperson, Keith Rockwell stated.

Recall that there had been widespread reports of Okonjo-Iweala’s emergence as Director General of the WTO after polling 104 votes ahead of South Korean Trade Minister, Yoo Myung-hee, with 60 votes.

However, an opposition of Okonjo-Iweala’s emergence by the United States delayed her announcement as the new Director General of the World Trade Organization.
