UN Secretary-General appoints Ameerah Haq to head Department of Field Support in New York

Dili, 26 April 2012 –
The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon selects Ameerah Haq, the head of the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), as Under-Secretary-General for the UN’s Department of Field Support which services all peacekeeping and political missions.

Ameerah Haq, a citizen of Bangladesh, joined UNMIT as the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) in 2009. Ms Haq will depart Timor-Leste on 9 June 2012 to take up the new appointment.
“I am honoured to have this responsibility bestowed upon me by the Secretary-General,” said Ms Haq. “Of course, I am very sad to be leaving this beautiful country. But the recent presidential elections showed me the strength of Timorese institutions; the electoral management bodies and the national police in particular did an outstanding job in managing and conducting the elections. I am confident that Timor-Leste has a great future ahead.”
Ms Haq previously held the positions of Deputy SRSG, as well as UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator, in Sudan and before that in Afghanistan.
Ameerah Haq has worked for the United Nations for the past thirty seven years, holding senior positions both at headquarters and in field missions. She brings to her new position extensive management and operational experience, supporting complex missions, including crisis management and transition activities.
