Samanta Power on Wednesday was confirmed by the Senate as the new head of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in a 68-26 vote.

The government is scheduled to take the oath of office ceremoniously Monday, according to interim USAID spokesman Pooja Jhunjhunwala, who said the agency expects “the vast experience it will bring to the role of Administrator.”

After her confirmation, Power thanked the supporters in a Twitter message.

“I’m so grateful for this bipartisan vote of confidence from the Senate, and with so much energy to join the incredible @USAID team to do great things done. The work of the Agency around the world has never been more vital, She said.

Her confirmation was applauded by international development groups such as the ONE Campaign and the US Global Leadership Coalition, as well as Biden administration officials such as Secretary of State Tony Blinken and UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield.

“Congratulations, Samantha Power, for your confirmation as Administrator @USAID. “I can not think of a better partner as the Administration seeks to restore US global leadership and address the toughest challenges,” Blinken said on Twitter. “I look forward to working with you to do this.”

Thomas-Greenfield said“There can be no better person to lead @USAID at the moment. All of us here at @USUN look forward to working with you to help make the world a more peaceful and prosperous country.”

In her opening remarks at the Senate Foreign Relations Confirmation hearing in March, Power said she “would aim to ensure that USAID enhances its long-standing leadership in food security, education, women’s empowerment, and global health.” while also addressing four interrelated and gigantic challenges facing the world at present: the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, the conflict and the collapse of the state, and the democratic backwardness.

Then President-elect Joe Biden announced in January that he intended to appoint Power, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under President Barack Obama and senior human rights lawyer, to lead the leadership overseeing America’s international development and humanitarian efforts. Biden’s transition team said at the time that the administrator position would be raised as a member of the National Security Council.
