Ban’s changing of the guard – By Colum Lynch | Turtle Bay

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is clearing house. Ban put his top advisers on notice that most of those who have served in his inner circle for the more than three and a half years of his run as the U.N.’s chief will have to step down in the coming months, providing him with an opportunity to start his second term with a new stable of younger, reinvigorated leaders, several officials told Turtle Bay.

Ban outlined his plans in a meeting with his top executives early last week, saying that officials at the undersecretary general and assistant secretary general level will likely be asked to either move to another post in the field or leave the organization.
