Argentina has nominated Mr Rafael Mariano Grossi; Burkina Faso has nominated Mr Lassina Zerbo’ Romania has nominated Mr Cornel Feruţă; and Slovakia has nominated Ms Marta Žiaková.
The four candidates were nominated following the death in July of director-general Yukiya Amano. The IAEA said 5 September was the closing date for the receipt of nominations.
The board expects to appoint a director-general in October. To be appointed, a candidate must secure a two-thirds majority in the 35-member IAEA board of governors.
