Obama's Prize: Have your say

09 October 2009, 11:31  - MyNews24 Editor
Cape Town - United States President Barack Obama has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.

"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the committee said.

Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, Colombian senator Piedad Cordoba and Chinese dissident Hu Jia were among the favourites to win the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, Norwegian national broadcaster NRK reported on Friday.

A record 205 nominations were received this year.

Do you think Obama deserves the prize or do you think one of the other candidates should have been awarded instead? Was it too early to award him, as some Nobel watchers have observed?
