Costa Rican withdraws candidate for UN top post

Wednesday, September 14, 2016


Costa Rican diplomat Christiana Figueres said she has withdrawn her candidacy for the top post at the United Nations, after failing to find sufficient support at the Security Council.

“All of the straw polls at the Security Council indicate that my candidacy does not have much future,” Figueres said at a press conference alongside Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez.
