Two-Man Race Has Maldives Shahid as PGA While 1-Man Dear Leader Guterres Bans Press

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, June 7 – In the United Nations from which Secretary General Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press 1069 days for asking about his complicity in the killing of civilians in Cameroon, poisoning them in Haiti with cholera and COVID in South Sudan, and their mass imprisonment by China in Xinjiang), now Guterres stands poises to grab five more years - in a one-man "election" while blocking at least seven opponents.

By contrast, for UN PGA on June 7 there were at least two candidates, see Inner City Press tweet here.

Afterward, hypocritical one-man election Dear Leader Guterres said, "Mr. Abdulla Shahid will bring unique insights to the 76th session of the General Assembly, as we prepare for COP26 in Glasgow in November.   I also want to express my deep appreciation to His Excellency Dr. Zalmai Rassoul, and thank him for contributing to this dynamic process." This while Guterres blocks seven opponents. He is killing the UN.

  June's non-communicative president of the UN Security Council, Estonia's Sven Jurgenson, refuses questions on the legal basis but said the UNSG will do its part on June 7.

  UN PGA Volkan Bozkir's spokesman Brenden Varman, who blocks Inner City Press on Twitter, quickly said the GA will follow suit in June. So Guterres says, the theft completed, he'll open the UN - all the better to take bribes in - on July 6. Today's UN is lawless and unaccountable.

On May 28 Inner City Press wrote to the Mission of Estonia, as incoming UN Security Council president, with questions including about Cameroon, Belarus, Honduras, Yemen, Western Sahara, Haiti and Libya.

Four days later, no answers - and PR Sven Jurgenson has without irony said that blocking opposition is fine, as is a one-man "election" for Secretary General. He called it legal, without citing any law, and with a Mission not answering its email. ACT, then, is an act.

 Inner City Press live tweeted Jurgenson's press-less press conference, here, and will continue. And, Shahid should be sure to dump Brenden Varma, the revolving door PGA spokesperson who blocks Inner City Press on Twitter and refuses all of its questions - and, reverse the ban, allow access - watch this site.
