The IAEA Board of Governors will continue the balloting process for the appointment of a new Director General at Monday.
"IAEA Board of Governors aims at appointing a new Director General by 2/3 majority in October. To this end intensive balloting will take place- one per day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Since ratings of two candidates are almost equal the competition will be extremely tense", wrote Mikhail Ulyanov, Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations in Vienna, in his twitter.
Two candidates are Cornel Feruta of Romania and Rafael Mariano Grossi of Argentina.
In order to be appointed, a candidate must secure a two-thirds majority in the 35-member IAEA Board of Governors. In the absence of such a majority, the balloting process will continue.
