IAEA BoG Backs Chief Grossi for 2nd Term in Post

The UN nuclear watchdog’s 35-nation board of governors on Friday backed the reappointment of Argentina’s Rafael Grossi to a second four-year term as director general, diplomats at the closed-door meeting said.
The decision was a formality since there was no challenger, Reuters reported.
The International Atomic Energy Agency’s board approved his reappointment by acclamation, meaning that no vote was held and no country expressed opposition, diplomats said. The decision is subject to approval by the IAEA’s General Conference, an annual meeting of all member states held in the autumn.
The General Conference is expected to approve it. Grossi’s current term ends in December.
