Live Poll: The 2010 Dekade: Persons of International Interest

Preface:

I don't know, if polls are allowed, if they touch political content. But I've also seen that there are social issues picked up in some polls. So - how political may a poll be? Where is the border?

Intro:

Which of these persons of international interests is your favorite? Discuss here.

Rules:

Living persons with political, financial or social heavyweight. The biggest influencers on earth, no second row - which means something like people who are the biggest of their countries and have to be known through news media. No dead persons, except they had a very big role in the 2010s.  Rules are pretty expendable on tat issue. ;D

Thank you, albstein. :D
These three you mentioned are pretty good. I've put them to the list. It would be nice, if you'd put the line of leaders to your contribution. Otherwise I would look for it. :D

P.S.: Those people don't have necessarily to be politician. They have to be the ones, who moved something. That can also be bad guys. Look at the examples, please! ;)

Problem: We got no image of Larry Page. We got to put him on the list without an image.

I've put him to the list anyway. Google is a number for sure! ;D
So I take this blank image, but maybe we would find a fitting image.

It's okay. I wasn't serious either.

Decade → Dekade
Combat → Kombat

K instead of C looks like a stylization in English.

Sometimes, I do not answere as I should. When I wrote the k in the title, I ran in German mode. And I'm still fan of the wrong written c --> k in Mortal Kombat. ;) The edgy K also looks more aggressive than the round C. That makes sense. But I know that my title was obviously wrong written. ;) ... Since you told me. ;)

My vote will likely go to Col Needham. I sincerely consider that IMDb is underrated as a global thing that aids everything: actual industry, education, researches ranging from independent small ones to much larger company-based, promotion, archiving... There are downsides. Everything has at least some. But results are already so large it's painful to see how neglectful people could be towards this website. To think that something so global began with a simple list of movies seen not unlike one I'm conducting on a daily basis always brings me in awe and fascination. 

I really like the selection so far, by the way. It's rather neutral (which is how it is supposed to be) and really is based on the impact of certain figures. I'm not exactly proud of entry from my country, to be honest, but impact of the person is indisputable. It's just that it's also rather unclear and kind of destabilizing so far.

I'm still not sure whom of them I like the most. But there are some on the list I don't really like. But to be neutral, they have to be on the list. Col Needham is one of my personal plus-candidates. ;D
Always look on the bright side of life. :D

About prime ministers, presidents and so on, ....
do these titles have to be written capitalized? (in the options)

They can be, but I don't think they have to be.

Officially, yes "Prime Minister is capitalized.

I have another question, I know Justin Trudeau ( I'm Canadian), but I don't know how he marked the decade outside Canada. 

Yes, he is Prime Minister of Canada, but Stephen Harper was too until 2015.

So I'll have to capitalize the titles. I will do.

I think that your poll is too focused on the last half of the decade, this is maybe why it is not going live.

It is also very political,  I don't believe that IMDb is willing to take part in that.

Thank you.
Please give me some persons of interest of the first half of the last decade.
I would prefer that IMDb tells me that and makes clear that this suggestion is not
wanted. So I wouldn't care about it anymore and delete the list.

FYC: Mohammad bin Salman, 12th Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. He seems to be the de facto ruler of the country, or at least the royal family's most active member. One of the key players in the Middle East; remember that Trump's first foreign trip was to Saudi Arabia. Just saw a documentary about "MbS" and his involvement in the Khashoggi case on arte (German).

Well, Col Needam basically ... uh ... made me into a cinephile, so I guess there is that.

I aim to be as politically neutral as possible as well, which may be a contributing factor to my pick.
