You have to wait for a new round to be started before choosing your picks. Don't worry, it'll be done before this evening.

So our nr. 1 is dead. Yasuhiro Nakasone was a great leader and "Ron & Yasu" was one of the best comical duos around in the 80s. It seems state leaders have big trpuble at getting to 102, as the last four nr. 1s all died at 101. C'est la vie. Congrats to mr. Hyun Soong-jong, former South Korean PM who is quite invisible historically speaking, even for his Country. 102 in March 2021; will he finally make it? We'll see...

 

Seventeenth round:

 

1)Hyun Soong-jong (1919), Prime Minister of South Korea

2)Hau Pei-tsun (1919), Prime Minister of Taiwan

3)Javier Perez de Cuellar (1920), Prime Minister of Perù

4)Josip Manolic (1920), Prime Minister of Croatia

5)Kim Yong-ju (1920), vacancy Head of State of North Korea

6)Tun Tin (1920), Prime Minister of Burma

7)Mustafa ben Halim (1921), Prime Minister of Lybia

8)Francisco Morales Bermudez (1921), President of Perù

9)Luis Echeverria (1922), President of Mexico

10)Janez Stanovnik (1922), President of Communist Slovenia

11)Milos Jakes (1922), General Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia

12)Jules Sedney (1922), Prime Minister of Suriname

13)Branislav Soskic (1922) President of Communist Montenegro

14) Lee Teng-hui (1923), President of Taiwan

15)Khamtai Siphandon (1924) Prime Minister and President of Laos

16)Tomiichi Murayama (1924) Prime Minister of Japan

17)Abderrahmane Youssoufi (1924) Prime Minister of Morocco

18)Kenneth Kaunda (1924) President of Zambia

19)Daniel arap Moi (1924), President of Kenya

20)Jimmy Carter (1924), President of United States of America

21)Lubomir Strougal (1924), Prime Minister of Czechoslovakia

22)Guillermo Rodriguez Lara (1924), President of Ecuador

23)Abdelsalam Majali (1925), Prime Minister of Jordan

24)Ali Hassan Mwinyi (1925), President of Tanzania

25)Giorgio Napolitano (1925), President of Italy

26)Mahathir Mohamad (1925), Prime Minister of Malaysia

27)Mohammad Hasan Sharq (1925), Chairman of Council of Ministers of Afghanistan

28)Ali Bozer (1925), Prime Minister of Turkey

29)Yang Hyong-sop (1925), Chairman of the Presidium of North Korea

30)Arnaldo Forlani (1925), Prime Minister of Italy

 

Arnaldo Forlani was one of the most influential political figures in the Italian 80s (CAF, Craxi, Andreotti, Forlani). Destroyed by a huge corruption scandal like the DC itself, he spent some weeks in ICU in 2016, and it seemed the end, but it wasn't. Still giving interviews and walking unaided.

 

Choose your pick!
