According to Bloomberg, United Nations Secretary-General Guterres hopes to continue to be re-elected.
Two diplomats familiar with the situation said that Guterres may soon officially inform the President of the United Nations General Assembly, because the decision has not been made public, so they said anonymously.
Guterres, 71, took office in January 2017 for a five-year term, which will end at the end of this year.
Guterres’ spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Most of the last United Nations Secretary-General have served two terms, including Ban Ki-moon (2007-2016) and Kofi Annan (1997-2006).
