For the third time in a decade, South Africa is set to be voted onto the UN Security Council as a non-permanent member tomorrow. South Africa is the only African country standing, and its candidature to represent the East and SouthernAfrican group was already endorsed by Southern Africa last year and the African Union in January.
While the vote on Friday is by secret ballot, South Africa is considered to “have it in the bag,” and is predicted to get well over the two-thirds required to secure a seat.
The vote is largely considered a popularity contest on how nations are perceived in terms of their ability to contribute to international peace and security.
