Former Labour Party leader Phil Goff says Helen Clark is the perfect person to take over the role of UN Secretary General.

Mr Goff joined Paul Henry on the show to say he would be happy to do anything he could to promote Ms Clark to the world in the hopes of helping her campaign.

"If I was asked to do anything on her behalf and on behalf of New Zealand, of course I'd do that. I don't think it'll come to that, but I'd be happy to put my voice behind her in anything that she needs."

The main obstacle Ms Clark will have to overcome will be politics, rather than proving that she can do the job well, says Mr Goff.
