    Vuk jeremic was selected president

    "Vuk jeremic was selected president of the sixty-seventh session of the United Nations General Assembly on 28 june 2012."


    Is the above sentence Okay? I got it while I was reading about United Nations on its website. Don't you think there should be put "as" or "as the" after the word "selected"? For example: Vuk jeremic was selected as the/as president of the sixty-seventh session of the United Nations General Assembly on 28 june 2012. Or is it without "as/as the" okay?

    Your opinions please.

    It's fine as it is (corrected).

    Re: Vuk jeremic was selected president

    Again capitalization mistakes. Sorry! I used to put "as" in this kind of sentences where there is "selected"; like "was selected as" because I feel it must be like "was/is known as". Then it's okay to write a sentence without "as" where there is "selected". Thanks.
