Trump nominated for Nobel Prize

Shinzo Abe (the Japanese Prime Minister) is not saying whether or not he nominated Donald Trump for the 2019 prestigious award, but the question may be moot: the US president has been put forward by others for the prize.

Mr. Trump during a White House news conference on Friday said Mr. Abe had given him “the most beautiful copy” of a five-page nomination letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Since then the Japanese premier has declined to say whether he had done so. Regardless, Mr. Donald Trump has already been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers.

“We have nominated him of course for the positive developments on the Korean Peninsula, it has been a very difficult situation and the tensions have since lowered and a lot of it is due to Mr. Trump’s unconventional diplomatic style” Per-Willy Amundsen told Reuters.

Mr. Amundsen, who is a member of the rightwing Progress Party, was Justice Minister in Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s cabinet in 2016-2018, he wrote a letter to the award committee together with his parliamentary colleague Christian Tybring-Gjedde.

The letter was submitted in June, immediately after Mr. Trump held a summit in Singapore with Kim Jong Un (the North Korean leader) aimed at easing tensions and tackling Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.

Mr. Tybring-Gjedde (who sits on the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of Norwegian Parliament), also confirmed the joint nomination of Mr. Trump when contacted by Reuters. He said “A possible award would of course depend on the talks leading to a credible disarmament deal.”

A wide range of people can nominate for the Nobel Peace Prize, including heads of state, members of parliaments and governments, university professors of social sciences, law or history and past Nobel Peace Prize laureates, among others.

The deadline for nominations for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, which will be announced on October 11, was on January 31.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee composed of five members, which decides who wins the award, does not comment on nominations, keeping secret for 50 years the names of nominators and unsuccessful nominees.

Still, it did say earlier this month that 304 candidates were nominated for this year’s prize, of which 219 are individuals and 85 are organizations.

Last year’s prize was jointly awarded to Yazidi human rights activist Nadia Murad and Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege.
