The chief of the United Nations has nominated the commissioner of the Philippines’ Commission on Audit, Heidi Mendoza, as the new under-secretary general for the internal oversight services of the UN.
“United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, following consultations with chairs of regional groups, informed the General Assembly of his intention to appoint Heidi Mendoza of the Philippines as the new Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services for a five-year non-renewable term,” a statement of the UN said.
