Romanian President Klaus Iohannis is bidding to become the next NATO secretary-general.

The Romanian President said this afternoon, during a press conference, that he wants the post and that he has the expertise and authority to run the alliance.

President Iohannis is the first one to publicly express his wish to become NATO’s secretary-general. The current secretary-general is former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who took office on 1 October 2014.

Two other names are being considered for NATO leadership. The frontrunner for the job is former Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. The US, UK, Germany and France have already expressed their support for Rutte. However, Mark Rutte is not very beloved in countries like Hungary and Romania.

A possible bid of Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas is also considered to have good chances. Ms Kallas has made a name for herself by her uncompromising, rough stance against Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine. Kaja Kallas has yet to announce her next move following the announcement of US and some West European support for Mark Rutte.

„Latvia’s Foreign Minister Krisjanis Karins has expressed interest in being considered, and Lithuania would like to see its Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte in the frame”, IntelliNews reported today.
