Kenya to Vie for UN Security Council Post in 2020 Polls

15 August 2018

Nairobi — Kenya will be vying for a post at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the 2021-2022 term.

This follows an approval by the Cabinet on Thursday for the country to vie for a non-permanent membership at the Council.

The elections are set to be held during the 74th session of the UN in 2020 and "a campaign strategy has already been drawn."

According to the Cabinet, membership of the UN Security Council will enhance Kenya's influence in international decision-making "particularly matters of peace and security for the benefit of the nation and the region at large."

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations which is principally charged with maintaining peace and security in the world.
