"It's time for other candidates to come forward that have experience in development," professor Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, told the U.N. Economic and Social Council.

"This is a position on which hundreds of millions of people depend for their lives," AP quoted him as saying. "Let's have a proper leadership of professionalism."
