Sorry to tell you, but Auntie Helen is coming home


Ms Clark is one of nine contenders remaining in the complex race for the position of UN secretary-general, but she hasn’t fared well in preliminary polls, coming in seventh.

Added to this, she may possibly face a veto from permanent Security Council member Russia when voting proper begins next month.

But Ms Clark says she has no intention of pulling out of the race and isn’t thinking about an alternative plan if she fails to get the job.

“I only every work on plan A. So plan A is we’re putting a lot of effort into this campaign and it ain’t over yet,” she told TV3’s The Nation.

“But of course, it’s a very windy path with a lot of hidden corners in it. It’s big geopolitics. It’s also about what style of secretary general the member states are looking for.”

Asked whether she would consider an eventual return to New Zealand, Ms Clark said she eventually would come back.

“One day, I will be home. That’s where my home is. That’s where my family is. So, who knows when it will be, but I’ll be back,” she said.

…and where her husband is.
