Moving On
Prime Minister Jean Chrétien will accept a job with the United Nations, a move that could hasten his retirement plans, according to published reports.

According to the Montreal newspaper La Presse, Chrétien was offered a foreign post, most likely with an African development agency. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan also invited Chrétien to sit on an advisory council to promote institutional reform.

Chrétien spokesman Steven Hogue would neither confirm nor deny the story.

"His plans will be known when the time is right," Hogue said.

Chrétien has expressed an interest in serving with the United Nations.

Last week, Chrétien indicated he may be ready to step down before his scheduled departure in February. Source.
