Russia's Prokopchuk loses Interpol election

Kim Jong Yang of South Korea has been elected Interpol's new president. Kim Jong Yang will take the office for two years. He served as Interpol's acting president after the corruption scandal with former Interpol President Meng Hongwei.

Kim Jong Yang received votes from 98 members of the Interpol General Assembly, while his rival, Alexander Prokopchuk of Russia, received 64 votes. The voting took place at the 87th session of the Interpol General Assembly in Dubai.

Thus, Alexander Prokopchuk, has kept his position of the vice-president of Interpol. The United States and European countries were strongly opposed to his nomination.

Kim Jong Yang is 57 years old. He previously worked in the Seoul Police and served as Chief of Police in the South Korean province of Kensan-Namdo. He started working at Interpol in 2012, and became the vice-president of the organisation in 2015.

President of Interpol is a symbolic position. The operational management of the organisation and coordination between member countries is carried out by the general secretariat chaired by German representative Jürgen Stock.

The president of Interpol presides and supervises the debates at sessions of the Interpol General Assembly and its executive committee; he monitors the compliance of Interpol with decisions of the General Assembly and the Executive Committee and maintain constant direct communication with the Secretary General of the organisation.

Kim Jong Yang will hold the position before 2020. After that, the General Assembly will meet again to elect a new president. President of Interpol is elected by two-thirds of majority votes - that is, a candidate is supposed to gain the support from at least 128 out of 192 member countries.

About 95% of Putin's Address to the Federal Assembly was devoted to social issues, but he also spoke about Russia's military power, her state-of-the-art weapons, and did not miss a chance to intimidate the United States.
