India scores a hat-trick at the UN elections



India wins a triple-victory at the United Nations elections on 14th September, Monday, on the occasion of the inaugural of the UN General Assembly's historic 75th session, which was held virtually for the first time, due to the situation aroused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


India has been elected to serve a term of four years on the UN's Commission of the Status of Women (CWS), a prestigious wing of the global body's Economic and Social Council ( ECOSOC), and has defeated China in this process.


India, through endorsements, has also won seats in two other ECOSOC bodies - one on the Program and Coordination Committee (CPC), and another seat on the Commission on Population and Development (CPD). The terms will begin in 2021, when India also starts to serve its two-year term, as a non-permanent member on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).


This indeed is a remarkable moment for India, and the citizens of the country should be proud of it.
