Serb minister elected next General Assembly head, sign of country’s makeover on world stage
The Washington Post — The one-year presidency of the General Assembly rotates among regions, and this was the first contested election since 1991.
Usually, a region puts forward a single candidate, but this year Eastern Europe had two contenders.
It was not immediately clear whether Jeremic, 36, would be the youngest president of the General Assembly when he takes over from Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser of Qatar on Sept. 18 at the start of the 67th session.
