Nobel Peace Prize wide open, no obvious pick

OSLO, Sept 25 (Reuters) – A record number of candidates remains in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize two weeks before a winner is announced, the head of the Norwegian Nobel Institute told Reuters on Friday.

A total of 205 individuals and organisations were nominated for the prize. Geir Lundestad said the number still under consideration was “significantly higher” than the two to three on the shortlist most years since his tenure began in 1990.
