Zimbabwe is bidding to be a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council in 2027.
The development was announced by Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary, Nick Mangwana said:
We are bidding to be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2027. It’s part of the Engagement and Re-engagement Policy. We will also host members of the Commonwealth Secretariat in the next few days. We call upon our nationals to support National Interest pursuits.
The Council is composed of 15 Members: Five permanent members: China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and ten non-permanent members elected for two-year terms by the General Assembly (with end of term year): Albania (2023) Brazil (2023).
A nonpermanent member is supposed to be elected to contribute to the council’s agenda.
In order for a resolution to be adopted, there must be nine votes in favor, with none of the permanent members using the veto.
