By BBN Staff: The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, assumed his second term as head of the hemispheric institution today.
Almagro’s second term runs until May 2025. Almagro was reelected by the Organization’s 54th Special General Assembly on March 20.
Secretary General Almagro announced that during his first administration he managed to adapt the OAS to the challenges of the 21st century, transforming it “once again into the main forum where issues in the region are debated. We continue to revolutionize actions, mechanisms and practices in multilateralism.”
“During this second term, we must normalize democracy as the only ideal political system for the Americas without discussion and without exceptions; and especially in facing COVID-19 we must address the structural challenges: fighting against poverty and inequality and achieving development,” added Secretary General Almagro.
For his part, the Chair of the Council and Ambassador of Haiti, Leon Charles, expressed on behalf of the body that he presides his assurance that the OAS will rise to the challenges under the leadership of Luis Almagro.
“Mister Secretary General you are one of the main assets of the Organization; the success of your term will be the success of the OAS and of every one of its member states. We wish you a successful and fruitful administration in these difficult times,” said Ambassador Charles.
