Norwegian MP Marius Nielsen nominated American entrepreneur and owner of the social network X Elon Musk for the Nobel Peace Prize.


According to the publication, among the contenders for the Nobel Prize in 2024 are: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Colombian President Gustavo Petro, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as well as human rights organizations from Israel and Palestine.

“The many technology companies that Musk has founded, owned or led are aimed at improving society, advancing knowledge of both Earth and space, while enabling communication and connectivity throughout the world,” Nielsen said.

Nielsen nominated Musk for his “steadfast defense of dialogue, freedom of speech and the ability to express one’s point of view” in an “ever-polarizing world.”

 


The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced on October 11.
