Sri Lanka seeks four major UN posts

    I think Mr. Dhanapala has a great chance to become next Secretary General if he can win the support of USA. As these days US is closely working with Sri Lanka it will be easy if SL government diplomatically tackle this issue. I remember Mr. Sherly Amarasinghe also contested for the UNO secretary general post long ago but then Sri Lanka was not given much support from major countries.

    While its true that Dhanapala is one of the most suitbale candidates for the job, it does nor work that way. With our recent Foreign Policy of leaning towards Pakistan and China, we have killed whatever chances he had.

    U.S. would not support us against the more formidable candidates from Thailand and S.Korea as they are more important to USA interests.

    I do not think we have any chanace except in the case of International Law Commission where Dr Rohan Perea has actively contributed for many years.

    I hope the four jobs Sri Lankan is asking for, at the UN will be ours . Most of all I hope we will get the job of Secretary General

    I believe Bill Clinton is also in the running for the Secretary General

    He has been nominated by George Bush still hash hash stuff
