Detail About MCQs

Pakistan was elected to the UN Security Council on June 6, 2024, securing a non-permanent seat for a historic eighth term with an overwhelming 182 out of 190 votes. There were a total of 190 votes: five abstained, and three voted against Pakistan. The required two-thirds majority to get elected was 124, and Pak­istan received 182 votes. Since it was a secret ballot, it’s not clear who voted against Pakistan, but some UN diplomats named India, Israel, and Armenia as the countries that opposed Pakistan. Pak­istan will now represent the Asia-Pacific group in the UN Security Council for the next two years — from 2025 to 2026.
