The World Health Organization (WHO), including Pope Francis, has been shortlisted for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize. The list, released on Monday (January 31st), includes British environmental TV journalist David Attenberg and Belarusian dissident leader Svetlana Sinoskaire.
According to a report by Reuters, the name of the World Health Organization has come to the fore this time due to the Corona epidemic which has been going on for almost two years. The international organization is still working on the epidemic. That’s why the World Health Organization has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
Also on the list are Greta Thunberg, a prominent teenager from Denmark, the National Unity Government of Myanmar, Simon Koff, Foreign Minister of Tuvalu, and the Friday for Future Movement, an organization working on climate change.
Norwegian lawmakers compile a list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee has announced the names of the Nobel Peace Prize winners, but they have not commented on the matter.
The committee has been keeping the names of the nominees secret for almost 50 years before the awards were announced. But Norwegian lawmakers assisting in the nomination process have revealed some names.
On Monday, they released the names of several individuals and organizations discussed worldwide.
