OAS re-elected Insulza

WASHINGTON — The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, was reelected today to a second five-year term

during the Thirty-Ninth Special Session of the OAS General Assembly held at the Organization’s headquarters in Washington, DC.

Secretary General Insulza was reelected by acclamation after the Minister of Foreign Relations of Paraguay, Héctor Lacognata, elected to chair

the Assembly, made the proposal.

The former Chilean Cabinet minister was the only candidate vying for the top job of The Americas.

He was re-elected by acclamation in a special session Wednesday of the Washington-based organization. The OAS has 33 active member states.

Finally, on Wednesday the United States gave its vote to Jose Miguel Insulza to lead the Organization of American States (OAS) for a second

five-year term as the organization´s secretary general.  One of Insulza´s goals for the new period is to improve hemispheric security, among other issues.

Insulza, was formerly Chile’s interior minister during the government of Ricardo Lagos (2000-2006).

During the last months, Chile was very active backing Insulza (both Bachelet  and now Piñera).

“We invited the rest of the countries to support Jose Miguel Insulza, so the support from the United States or any other country is going

to be welcome,” said Chile’s Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno on monday. 

Moreno is now in Washington DC, with Insulza “because it’s important for Chilean diplomacy and for Chileans that he holds on to that post” ,

said Piñera´s Chancellor.
