New Zealand Herald reports the former New Zealand Prime Minister slipped from sixth place to seventh place out of 11 candidates.
Clark hinted in a tweet she would be reconsidering her candidacy: “Disappointed by outcome. Will discuss over coming days.”
New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully said any decision was entirely over to Clark.
It was clear from the increase in "discourage" votes for almost every candidate, that once a country had decided on a first preference, they had tried to discourage others to advantage their first preference.
