NDJ – TIME magazine elected Pope Franciscus as ‘Man of The Year 2013′. According to the magazine, the new pope has become a new voice for human conscience.
To be chosen as TIME’s ‘Man or Woman of the year’ a person must have made a great impact on worldly news.
TIME says that Pope Franciscus has the “power to change the world”.
Nominees for the prestigious title included Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, US President Barack Obama and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
Whistle blower Edward Snowden was second runner up.
TIME’s tradition to choosing a person of the year dates back to 1927. The chosen individual is not picked for his or her negative or positive influence but for his/her goodwill.
Over the past 30 to 40 years however, men like Adolf Hitler and Jozef Stalin also were elected as Man of the Year, with Stalin making the cover twice.
Facebook announced earlier this week that Pope Franciscus was also the most popular person on Facebook in 2013 and was talked about more on the social site than any other public figure.
