Washington: India secured its place as a member of the United Country’s Commission on Status of Women, a body of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), said TS Tirumurti, permanent representative of India to the United Nations, on Monday (September 15).
Requiring to Twitter, Tirumurti said, “India wins seat in main ECOSOC body! India elected members of the Commission on Status of Women (CSW). It’s a ringing endorsement of our dedication to promoting gender equality and females’ s empowerment in all our endeavors. We thank member states for their assistance.”
India, Afghanistan, and China objected to the elections to schedule a seat in the Commission on Status of Women. Even as India and Afghanistan won the ballot amongst the 54 members, China might not cross the half-way mark. India will belong to the United Country’s Commission on Status of Women for four years, 2021 to 2025. Previously on June 18, India was elected as one of the non-permanent members to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) after protecting 184 votes out of the total 192.
India beats China to become a member of the UN’s prestigious ECOSOC body.
