Some on Nobel Peace panel reluctant on Obama: report
OSLO (Reuters) – Most members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee initially argued against awarding the 2009 Peace Prize to President Barack Obama before agreeing to the choice, Norway’s top-selling daily Verdens Gang (VG) said on Thursday.
The paper said three of five members had objections during the early phases of the process, but were persuaded in favor of Obama mainly by the chairman of the committee, former Prime Minister Thorbjoern Jagland.
