In UN Corrupted By Guterres, Term Limits Repeal Rejected Then Reinstated In Re-Vote

By Matthew Russell Lee & sources, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, June 25, Exclusive – Elections are in full swing at the UN Staff Union in New York, just after the ghoulish one-man "re-election" of Antonio Guterres as Secretary General with at least seven opposition candidates blocked. A fish rots from the head. Now another update from banned Inner City Press:

With elections underway for the UN staff union in New York, the first Vice-President, Aitor Arauz Chapman, found his ticket disqualified because he had exceeded term limits.  

Not to be outdone by the rules, he and outgoing president Patricia Nemeth organized an emergency general meeting, without getting the 300 signatures required, in order to lift term limits halfway through the elections. This practice is illegal in countries and in the union itself.  900 staff turned out and the proposal was voted down.

 The outgoing leadership unilaterally decided that the vote they had lost was "unreliable" and announced a new vote, this time through Microsoft Forms.

By using this survey software they could see exactly who voted and how.  No independent observers were allowed access and many of those who attended the original EGM did not receive a link to vote.  Unsurprisingly, the vote was reversed to allow the outgoing leadership to run again.  Staff members have accused the union leadership of foul play and corruption.

They are calling on the Secretary-General to disallow their desperate attempts to outstay their legal welcome. However, it is unlikely the SG will intervene as he has publicly thanked the outgoing New York leadership for bending to his will and awarded them a special prize.

Also, Guterres engaged in his own electoral fraud, with at least seven opposition candidates blocked. To this has the UN sunk. 

With the outgoing President also running for the UN staff pension committee, many wonder what lies in store for their own pensions.
