Antonio Guterres appointed as new UN Chief
The 193 member states adopted by acclamation a resolution naming the late premier minister of Portugal for a five-year term starting from January next year.
Guterres was greeted by loud applause as he went into the packed hall following the vote and was to deliver his inaugural address as incoming UN chief during the session.
Ban told the assembly that Guterres was well-known in diplomatic circles as a man of compassion during his decade as UN high commissioner for refugees.
