Dear all,

As per Chapter 5 of the MUN Charter & Guidance Document, the non-permanent members of the Security Council must be elected every three months.

Chapter 5, Sections 2 & 3 - MUN Charter2) The Security Council will also have two positions for non-permanent members. States are elected to these positions are elected every 3 months. Any General Assembly member state may stand in these elections.

3) The Secretary General shall manage all Security Council elections using the schedule outlined in the Guidance Document.

This election is overdue and should have took place in April 2014. Many apologies for this.

Any General Assembly member of the MUN is permitted to stand in these elections. If anyone wishes to do so, they should write a manifesto of no more than 300 words and send it via PM to me by Wednesday 2nd July 2014 10:00am.

Election ScheduleSaturday 28th June 2014 - The Secretary General will announce the positions up for election in the Security Council and, acting as returning officer, will announce the election and ask for manifestos (no more than 300 words) to be submitted to them.

Wednesday 2nd July 2014 – The Secretary General will post any manifestos and open a 2 day Q&A period.

Friday 4th July 2014 – The Secretary General will open voting. Q&A may continue during this time.

Tuesday 8th July 2014 – The Secretary General will announce the winner. If there is a tie between the top two candidates, a run off vote of three days shall occur.

Any questions, feel free to post here or drop me a PM.

This is very confusing for me, can you dumb down the words so I can understand what this role entails?

Hi Melon girl
No problem - if you win the election, the country you represent becomes a member of the Security Council. This is great as it means there's a new member and new country represented in the most important and powerful group of countries in the SC (powerful states like the UK, China etc). You'll be sitting alongside those countries, taking part in their discussions in the private sub-forum as well as voting on SC specific resolutions. You also have increased influence in deciding what happens and precautions taken in conflicts and international disputes attempting to resolve them.

The election will hopefully take place tomorrow - to be a part of it you need to a submit a manifesto of no more than 300 words which could explain why you think the country you represent would be beneficial to the Security Council plus what you yourself could bring. The election will then take its usual course as highlighted in the schedule.

hopefully that's a bit clearer - if you'd like me to clarify anything let me know.

Ermm unfortunately not. I should have probably checked that before replying before! You can still submit a manifesto but clearly state that you intend on changing to X position if elected (so write the manifesto as if you're going to represent a different country).

Received one manifesto - need at least one more before these positions can be filled or the election can take place if there's more than two going for it.

Extending the deadline to this evening with reluctance!
