Nobel Peace Prize 2020

The list for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize this year consists of 318 candidates including US President Donald Trump.

Alfred Nobel desired that The Nobel Peace Prize is an international award given to a nominee who is considered to have done some significant work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of enmity and for the holding and promotion of peace and harmony.

This year’s peace prize will be announced by The Norwegian Nobel Committee on Friday. Even before the announcement has been made for the award, the World Health Organization appears to be a possible contender. Experts assume that climate activist Greta Thunberg or press freedom groups can be other strong contenders.

The list for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize this year consists of 318 candidates. It is the fourth largest number in the history of the prize. Since last 50 years the names of the nominees are not revealed but the nominators reveal them to public after nominating them.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali was awarded the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. He was conferred with the prestigious award “for his initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea”.

Greta Thunberg was bookies’ favorite to win the 2019 prize but the Ethiopian PM or a representative of the free press could be the more likely winner, according to the opinion of the experts.
