Reuters reveals U.N. chief mulling future in South Korea where he tops presidential polls

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told Reuters in an interview that he would return to South Korea when he leaves the world body to consider what role he can play in the future of his country amid a push for him to run for president – the first time he has spoken publicly about his future beyond the UN. Ban is the only potential candidate for the presidential election in December 2017 with consistently more than 20 percent support in opinion polls. Reuters also revealed that Ban was the odds-on favorite to win the election but he could struggle in the area of domestic politics.
