GENERAL ASSEMBLY

The General Assembly is the main deliberative body of the UN. As opposed to the Security Council, which is exclusive and grants unique veto rights to five nations, all 192 UN member nations have membership and equal voting rights in the General Assembly.

The General Assembly approves the admission of new UN members and elects members to other UN organs. Over the years, it has become the primary platform for the dialogue between developed and developing states. Among its duties are:

• Reviewing reports from the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council;

• Making recommendations on international political cooperation;

• Developing and systematizing international collaboration in economic, social, cultural, educational, and health fields;

• Counseling and encouraging peaceful settlement of hostile situations amongst nations; and

• Appointing the Secretary-General in conjunction with the Security Council and electing non-permanent members of the Security Council, judges of the International Court of Justice, and members of the Economic and Social Council.
