Ask the candidates

What would you ask the candidates vying to be the next leader of the United Nations?

On Friday 3 June, members of the global public will have a chance to quiz Secretary-General candidates at an historic debate in London.

António Guterres (Portugal), Vuk Jeremić (Serbia) and Igor Lukšić (Montenegro) will go head-to-head in front of a live audience and face pre-submitted questions from the audience and from the public at large.

Submit your question using the form opposite, or via Twitter using the hashtag: #SGdebate.

The best question will be rewarded with a free ticket to the debate, and will be included in the interactive session with candidates (please see the terms and conditions below).
