Former Ethiopian Health Minister and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dr Tedros Adhanom has become the first African to lead the World Health Organization. His victory becomes after three rounds of votes were he need to secure 2/3 of the votes needed to win. Despite becoming Ethiopia’s and Africa’s first WHO director Dr Tedros has faced growing protest from Ethiopians for his role and membership as the ruling party.

Ethiopia’s Tedros Adhanom got the most votes in the race to see who will become the next head of the UN’s World Health Organization, according to a journalist tweeting the results.

But he did not get the two-thirds majority required to win outright in the first round.
