The Heat: Who will be the next UN Secretary-General?

Who will be the next Secretary-General of the United Nations? And, what are the chances that a woman may lead the international organization for the first time?

The race to succeed Ban Ki-moon as the next Secretary-General of the United Nations is now well underway.

He steps down in December after serving two terms as the head of the global organization that includes 193 member states.

And, for the first time since the U.N. was established more than 70 years ago, it’s possible that a woman may take over as the new U.N. Secretary-General. Five of the candidates still in the race are female.

For perspective on the candidates and the race, CCTV America’s Liling Tan reported from the United Nations in New York.

    There will be a one world government led by the antichrist but before then, Jesus would have raptured His true saints who have parted ways with sin.
