Venezuela, Libya suspend from voting in UN General Assembly

AMN

UN HQSVenezuela and Libya have been suspended from voting in the UN General Assembly for the third time in three years because of millions of dollars in unpaid dues to the world body.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres informed the General Assembly in late January that 14 countries including Venezuela and Libya were in arrears, and Assembly spokesman Brenden Varma confirmed today that Venezuela has lost its vote in the 193-member global organisation as a result. Libya did as well.

According to a letter from Guterres to the Assembly President, Venezuela must pay a minimum of 25,200,296 US dollar to restore its voting rights and Libya must pay at least 6,594,842 US dollar.

Venezuela is mired in an economic and political crisis and Libya has two rival governments, each backed by an array of militias.
