Urquiza received eight votes against two for Britain’s candidate Stephen Kavanagh and one for Mubita Nawa from Zambia. His election must be ratified by Interpol’s general assembly in November, the Brazilian government said in a statement

From 2025 to 2030, Urquiza, who is presently in charge of international cooperation at the Brazilian Federal Police, will take over as head of Interpol, replacing Juergen Stock of Germany.

Eight votes were cast for Urquiza, compared to two for Stephen Kavanagh, the British candidate, and one for Zambian candidate Mubita Nawa.

The Brazilian government released a statement stating that his election needs to be approved by Interpol’s general assembly in November.

Following his election, Urquiza told reporters at the agency’s Lyon, France, headquarters, “This is recognition of Brazil’s neutrality.” He declared, “Interpol can benefit greatly from diversity and foreign experiences.”

With 196 member nations, Interpol is the biggest police organization in the world.

Only five persons from industrialized Western nations have led Interpol in its 100 years, four of them are in Europe and one in the US.

If the group isolates itself, it could lose legitimacy and credibility. Plurality is what we need for Interpol to succeed. For all regions to be served, we need all countries to feel involved, Urquiza stated in a February interview with Reuters.
