The UN General Assembly on Wednesday elected India, Ireland, Mexico and Norway as non-permanent members of the Security Council for a two-year term.
One non-permanent seat remains to be filled. Kenya and Djibouti, neither of which won the required two-third majority on Wednesday, will enter a run-off on Thursday, said Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, the current General Assembly president, who announced the voting results.
Canada, which was running in the Western Europe and Others Group against Ireland and Norway, failed to get a seat.
The newly elected members of the Security Council will have a two-year term that begins on Jan. 1, 2021.
