The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) supports the White House nomination of International Republican Institute (IRI) President Mark Green to the position of administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

"I congratulate Ambassador Green on his nomination to lead USAID. He has a deep understanding of how stable democracies make for better trading partners, provide new market opportunities, improve global health outcomes, and promote economic freedom and regional security," said IFES President and CEO Bill Sweeney. "Ambassador Green is uniquely qualified to lead USAID and sustain the agency's tradition of independent support for democracy, rights and governance."
