Uruguay Wins Seat on UN Security Council

UNITED NATIONS – Uruguay won approval on Thursday from an overwhelming majority of UN members for its bid to occupy one of the 10 non-permanent seats on the Security Council for the 2016-2017 term.

Representatives of 185 of the 193 countries in the General Assembly supported Uruguay’s uncontested candidacy for one of the two seats reserved for Latin America.

Uruguay, which previously held a seat in 1965-1966, will replace Chile on the Security Council in January.

The Security Council comprises five permanent members with veto power – the U.S., Russia, China, France and Britain – and 10 non-permanent members elected for staggered two-year terms.

Thursday’s vote saw Japan, Ukraine, Egypt and Senegal chosen to to replace Chad, Jordan, Lithuania and Nigeria, respectively.

The other non-permanent members who will sit on the council next year are Angola, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain and Venezuela.
