St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic are among nine countries that have lost their voting rights at the United Nations because of arrears in their annual contributions to the world body. Read full article
But would be funny if they do lose voting rights.
Would this mean the Security council would have to elect a new member and chair?
Venezuela is an example. Brazil should do the same!
Defund the UN
Describing it as Useless doesn't do it justice.
Move all those gross people out of NYC
We don't want them here.
There are a number of states that should not only lose voting rights but should be totally ejected. Right at the top is argieland, for starting the Falklands War and ignoring a Security Council resolution. Then Bolivia, Brazil, North Korea, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Iran, Jamaica, Libya, Russia, Somalia, Syria, Turkey, Venezuela, Zimbabwe.
It's become a fairly ineffective and useless organisation.
Un Natural that it has become.
.....Brazil should do the same.....quite frankly, I agree. First, the UN is not worth its weight in sh*t, and second, Brazil's opinion is totally irrelevant anyway.
The UN has just become a forum for the underdeveloped countries to vent their gripes, and that wastes a ton of money and gets nothing done. Much like the Mercosul.
I doubt that will happen. No one but Venezuela in South America postulated for the position; that is why Venezuela was elected to de Security Counsel.
All members of the Decolonisation Committee should be silenced because of its ineptitude and irrelevancy.
To-Be or Not-To-Be: Mainly depends upon the actual worth [Short & Long-Term Commercial & Political Gains] of the UN Voting Rights [and the UN-Membership]; to a country.
