KIWI CLARK CLEAR FAVOURITE FOR UN SECRETARY GENERAL

With nine runners left in the race to be the next Secretary General of the United Nations, bookmakers William Hill have former New Zealand PM, Helen Clark, as the clear 2/1 favourite.

'Helen Clark seems to tick all the necessary boxes to be the front-runner to win this prestigious race - and political punters agree as she is the best backed contender' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Bulgaria's Irina Bokova 9/4 second favourite and also offer 6/1 Antonio Guterres - Portugal, 6/1 Danilo Turk - Slovenia, 12/1 Vuk Jeremic - Serbia, 16/1 Natalia Gherman - Moldova, 16/1 Vesna Pusic - Croatia, 20/1 Srgjan Kerim - Macedonia, 25/1 Igor Luksic - Montenegro.
