India set to re-enter UN Security Council

NEW DELHI: India is set to re-enter the UN Security Council for the eight time, as it is the sole contender for the Asia Pacific seat, after the General Assembly holds polls for electing the five non-permanent members on June 17. UNGA will have new voting arrangements due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

India’s candidature for 2021-22 for the lone seat from Asia Pacific had been unanimously endorsed by 55 members of the group last June.

Canada, Ireland and Norway will vie for the two seats in the ‘western Europe and other countries’ category. Mexico is the only candidate for the ‘Latin America and Caribbean’ seat. Kenya and Djibouti will contest for the Africa seat.

The new term will be critical for India, which has been pushing for inclusion of more permanent members to the UNSC.
