Barack Obama

The re-elected U.S. President Barack Obama was selected as Time’s Person of the Year 2012. Brave Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban for promoting education in Muslim girls was this year’s runner-up.

This is the second time Obama was chosen by the magazine. The President won the title in 2008 for the first time.

“For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year,” Time’s managing editor Richard Stengel said in the official statement.
