Trump nominee eliminated from race to lead UN migration agency: source

Geneva (AFP) – Member states of the United Nations migration agency on Friday rejected President Donald Trump’s nominee for director general, repudiating historic American control of the organisation. 

Ken Isaacs, who faced serious allegations of anti-Muslim bigotry, was eliminated after three rounds of voting, said a source with direct knowledge of the results, leaving the contest between Portuguese politician and former EU commissioner Antonio Vitorino and current IOM deputy chief Laura Thompson.
