Andres Oppenheimer: OAS candidate leaves many open questions | Miami Herald

Barring the last-minute emergence of another candidate, former Uruguayan Foreign Minister Luis Almagro is likely to be elected as new head of the 34-country Organization of American States (OAS) in a secret vote on March 18. I recently interviewed Almagro, so far the only candidate for the job, who says he has the backing of 20 OAS-member countries. I was left with some troubling questions about whether, if elected, he will resurrect the Washington-D.C.-based organization from its current irrelevance.
