    African Union has chosen South African
    Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as its leader, making
    her the first woman to hold the post. Ms Dlamini-Zuma beat incumbent Jean Ping of
    Gabon after a closely fought contest for the
    chairmanship of the organisation. In January, neither got the required two-thirds
    majority, leaving Mr Ping in office for another six
    months. The dispute has overshadowed other issues,
    especially security and trade. Voting had been broadly split along linguistic lines,
    with English-speaking countries tending to support
    Ms Dlamini-Zuma and French-speaking countries
    lining up behind Mr Ping. Senior officials had warned that failure to resolve the
    leadership deadlock would divide the AU and
    undermine its credibility. Long-serving minister Ms Dlamini-Zuma, the former wife of South African
    President Jacob Zuma, won the leadership of the
    AU commission in a third round of voting. She got 37 votes at the 54-member body, giving her
    the 60% majority she needed to be elected. The 63-year-old is currently South Africa's home
    affairs minister, and has also had spells as minister
    of health and of foreign affairs. She is one of her country's longest-serving
    ministers. But critics said her candidacy had broken an
    unwritten tradition that the chairmanship should not
    be occupied by one of Africa's major nations. Earlier this week, Mr Ping denied a South African
    media report speculating he was going to withdraw
    from the race. His use of the AU's website and letterhead for his
    statement prompted the southern African regional
    bloc Sadc to accuse him of misusing AU resources
    for his re-election bid. Ms Dlamini-Zuma's election came at a summit in
    Addis Ababa, the organisation's home city. As in January, the official theme of the summit was
    boosting intra-African trade. It is also due to focus on the continuing instability in
    Mali, mounting violence in the eastern Democratic
    Republic of Congo and tension between Sudan and
    South Sudan.
