The favorites for the Nobel Peace Prize

2016-10-06

Friday, October 7 at 11:00 a.m., the winner of one of the most recognized awards, the Nobel Peace Prize, will be announced from Norway.

Once again this year, many of the candidates are heroes from the refugee crisis or wars in the Middle East.

Among other popular choices are Russian defender of human rights, Svetlana Gannushkina, and the White Helmets, Syrian civil defense volunteers dedicated to rescuing lives from the rubble after a bomb.

Another favorite is Nadia Murad, the Yazidi who escaped from slavery from the Islamic State.

There are three Latin Americans who are considered highly eligible: the president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, together with the leader of the FARC, Timochenko; and Pope Francis.

Although the Argentine pontiff is among the candidates, he is not a favorite. This week he was asked who he thinks deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

POPE FRANCIS
"I hope that at international level, setting aside the Nobel Peace Prize, there will be acknowledgement or a declaration on children, on the disabled, on minors, on civilians who have died from the bombing."

In 2015, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, for the work they did in their country promoting dialogue and helping to build a pluralistic political system.
