Coverage of the 1981 UN Secretary General Race

  • Share

In 1981, Dr. Salim contested for the post of United Nations Secretary General - looking to unseat incumbent Kurt Waldheim. The rigorous campaign was felt both through the diplomatic corridors of the United Nations, Organisation of African Unity (OAU), major capitals across the world and of course the media. The media coverage of the UN Secretary General race was relentless and was a demonstration of just how fierce the geopolitics was in 1981 particularly over who should run the UN. Both Waldheim and Dr. Salim did not succeed in the end.
