The Herald reports:
Former Prime Minister Helen Clark has been appointed for a another term in her role at the United Nations.
Miss Clark was first appointed as the UN Development Programme Administrator in 2009.
She said it had been an “honour and a privilege” to serve in the role for the past four years.
“I thank the Member States of the United Nations General Assembly and the Secretary-General for their confidence in me to lead the organisation for another term,” she said.
Four years goes quickly.
The position has a tax free US$450,730 salary and US$240,000 housing subsidy which is a total package of US$690,000 tax free. That is NZ$803,500 net which is equal to NZ$1.19 million gross. A lot better than being PM! I suspect she’s still like her old job back though.
Her new term will expire in April 2017.
