Pak Teen, Colombia Prez for Nobel

Pakistani schoolgirl Malal Yousufzai who was shot in the head by the Taliban for supporting girls' education is a wild card entry for this year's Nobel Peace prize, with the leaders of Colombia and Myanmar among promising nominees for the award.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos was sure to be on the listing for his endeavors to end half a century of struggle with the FARC guerrillas, aboard Myanmar's Thein Sein, who has led a change of state from decades of monocracy, people acquainted with the committee's discussions said.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton was once again a affirmable nominee for his charitable activity. Even so, Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot, which profited global infamy when three of its members were imprisoned for performing a "punk prayer" against President Vladimir Putin in a Moscow church, were not perceived as possible winners.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee, which declares its judgment on October 12, received a record number of nominations for this year's honor.

"The prize remains gaining value and care," said its Director Geir Lundestad. "Presidents, prime ministers, former honorable subjected many of the namings and we have abundance of new names as well as 'old' ones on the list."

The 15-year old Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai has get on a globally recognized symbol of impedance to the Taliban's endeavors to contradict women education and other rights. "The youngest winners lean to be in their 30s and a 15-year old will be a hard one for them to manage," said Kristian Berg Harpviken, the Director of the Peace Research Institute Oslo, which leads the Nobel committee's work.

Yemeni peace and women's rights activist Tawakkol Karman is very young winner, having accepted the 2011 award at the age of 32.

"They'll choose a nominee with high moral honesty, a high profile and a worldwide reach," said Harpviken, who registered Yousufzai among his favorites. "These choices have lessened the honor of the prize because they resonated very poorly with present opinion but Jagland doesn't mind disputation."

The Committee never bring out its list of candidates but a broad range of officials and organizations around the world have the right to submit nominations and many disclose their choices openly.
