Noramly – that’s my husband, not me – is in the news.
The Malaysian government is submitting his name as a candidate for the post of Director General of the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna Austria, to replace Dr ElBaradei, who is retiring.
Noramly was a Deputy Director General for over six years up to 1992.
Of course, none of this may come to anything. The Board will vote in June to elect a new D.G. from the candidates put forward by governments. It is supposed to be the turn of the Asian region, although that is not necessarily the way things will turn out.
As for me, well, I always did love Vienna…
