BUENOS AIRES, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Argentina's President Mauricio Macri on Friday nominated his Foreign Affairs Minister Susana Malcorra as candidate to succeed UN chief Ban Ki-moon as the next UN secretary general.

Malcorra, 61, would provide ""creative solutions"" to the global problems the UN tackles, Macri said.

Her nomination was made official in a letter Macri sent to the president of the UN General Assembly, Mogens Lykketoft, and the head of the UN Security Council, Abdellatif Aboulatta.

The UNGA appoints the secretary general on the recommendation of the Security Council.

""The Argentinian government is convinced of the conditions and capabilities of Mrs. Malcorra, which will allow her to amply meet the functions of the post of secretary general of the United Nations,"" Macri wrote.

As a woman, Malcorra stands a good chance given that there has never been a woman UN secretary general since the world body was created in 1945, and many say the time has come.

But as a Latin American, her chances may be slim, since the general sentiment is that it is Eastern Europe's turn to lead the organization, which has already had a secretary general from Latin America and he served two terms (Javier Perez de Cuellar 1982-1991).

The field of candidates so far includes four women and five men. Ban concludes his term at the end of this year.

" Imagine that the year is 2055. (Although we have leapt 40 years ahead in time Maillot Benjamin Pavard Coupe du Monde 2018 , you don’t have to imagine yourselves to be 40 years older. :) This is just a thought experiment and you can be the same age that you are today.) You are living in an apartment complex in one of the big cities of India. You are standing in your terrace, waiting for the sun to rise. You see the master of our universe appear at the horizon and pay your obeisance. Then you perform your morning ablutions and flush. The flush is very hi-tech and therefore consumes only 3 litres of water; today’s flushes consume almost 4 times as much. After flushing, the “black water” doesn’t head through the sewage lines towards the closest “wet wells”. Instead it is taken to a black water filtering system (BWFS) which is located at the base of your building, where it is first “de-watered” Maillot Hugo Lloris Coupe du Monde 2018 , which means separating the organic matter from the water. The former is sent for vermi-composting and turns into safe fertilizer in an year or so, while the latter is filtered, treated, and stored.
