President-elect Joe Biden picks Samantha Power, former UN envoy, for US aid post – Times of India


WASHINGTON: President-elect Joe Biden has selected SamanthaPower, the US ambassador to the United Nations under President Barack Obama, to run the US Agency for International Development. That’s the agency that oversees US foreign humanitarian and development aid.
Biden made the announcement on Wednesday and said he was elevating the position to the National Security Council in the White House.
He called Power “a world-renowned voice of conscience and moral clarity.” Power served as UN ambassador from 2013 to 2017. She won a Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for her book “A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide,” about the US foreign policy response to genocide.
