NATO is reportedly aiming to put a woman at its helm for the first time
The Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg may become the new head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), replacing Kristalina Georgieva, Norwegian broadcaster TV 2 reported, citing “reliable” sources within the US-led military bloc.
With no successor in sight for the position, Stoltenberg may end up extending his term even beyond 2023 — possibly for one more year — according to multiple media reports, as RT reported.
Several high-ranking politicians are reportedly being considered as new presidents of the military bloc. NATO is reportedly aiming to put a woman at its helm for the first time, with Slovak President Zuzana Kaputova, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and former Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic among the candidates.
In early November, the New York Times reported that Washington’s leading candidate to replace the outgoing NATO secretary general was Chrystia Freeland, who is currently Canada’s finance minister and deputy prime minister.
“Where each candidate ends up on supporting Ukraine in the war against Russia will be a critical factor,” the NYT wrote.
