EVANS IN LAST FIVE FOR TOP UN REFUGEE POST

by David Nason FORMER Labor foreign minister Gareth Evans is through to the final round of interviews for the job as UN high commissioner for refugees and will go for gold next week in New York against a Dane, a Frenchman, a Tunisian and a Portuguese man. The candidates - all men - have emerged from an original list of more than 30 applicants cut to a shortlist of eight by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's chief-of-staff Mark Malloch Brown in March. His requirement that all shortlisted candidates submit the names of five referees was an odd stipulation, given their high international profiles. The Australian understands High Court judge Michael Kirby was among the names submitted by Mr Evans. Joining him are are Denmark's Soren Jessen-Petersen, who heads the UN interim administration mission in Kosovo; former French health minister and founder of Medicins Sans Frontieres Bernard Kouchner; Tunisia's Kamel Morjane, the UN's assistant commissioner for refugees; and former Portuguese prime minister Antonio Guterres. The three to miss the final cut were Italian Emma Bonino, a member of the European parliament, Belgium's Economics and Energy Minister Mark Verwilghen and Swiss Foreign Affairs Minister Hans Dahlgren. The UNHCR position became vacant when former Dutch prime minister Ruud Lubbers was forced to quit earlier this year amid a sexual harassment scandal. Mr Evans, 60, who once aspired to replace Boutros Boutros-Ghali as UN secretary-general -- an ambition that earned him the nickname "Gareth Gareth" -- currently works as president and CEO of the International Crisis Group, a Brussels-based foreign policy think tank. He has been regarded as one of the favourites for the UNHCR post since the search began to replace Mr Lubbers but he has refused to discuss his prospects in the media. The Howard Government has backed Mr Evans, with Foreign Minister Alexander Downer saying the national interest was served by having "suitably qualified Australians" in top international positions. The final interviews will take place at UN headquarters in New York on May 19 and 20, with a decision on the winner expected to be announced by the end of the month.
