President-elect Joe Biden announced Wednesday that he is nominating Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, as administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The transition team also said that Biden plans to elevate the position of USAID administrator to become a member of the National Security Council in his administration.

Power’s nomination is the latest example of Biden leaning on officials who served in the Obama administration to fill key roles. Power served as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. from 2013 to 2017.
