No Confidence in Ban Ki-moon Text Released After 5 Days, Ban Hadn't Seen

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, January 29 -- The UN Staff Union on January 24 passed a resolution of "no confidence" Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

  Inner City Press exclusively covered the vote and meeting, in which Ban's response to Inner City Press at his press conference two days previous that those who oppose his proposals are "selfish."

  On January 25, Inner City Press asked Ban's Associate Spokesman Farhan Haq for the Secretariat's response to the resolution, which criticizes Ban's spending on travel and UN Peacekeeping waste.

Haq replied that the Secretariat, and Ban, hadn't yet seen the resolution. Since then, Ban has been among other places in Davos, Switzerland.

Now five days later, the Staff Union leadership has released the resolution, here.
