South Korea's foreign minister cemented his position as the near-certain successor to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the only one of six candidates to escape a veto in an informal Security Council ballot. "It is quite clear that from today's straw poll that Minister Ban Ki-Moon is the candidate that the Security Council will recommend to the General Assembly," China's UN Ambassador Wang Guangya said Monday. The Security Council was expected to hold a formal vote to pick the eighth secretary-general in the United Nations' 60-year history on October 9, making Ban Ki-Moon's appointment almost assured. The 192-nation General Assembly must approve the council's recommendation, and traditionally does so without protest.
