India re-elected to UNCITRAL seat

United Nations: India has been reelected by the General Assembly to a six-year term on the UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).

After the election on Monday, India’s Mission to the UN said in a statement that “it would continue to play a constructive role in the UNCITRAL which is recognized as the core legal body of the United Nations system in the field of international trade law.”

India has won all the five elections it contested at the UN this year, following last year’s re-election to the UN Human Rights Council.

In April, the UN Economic and Social Committee (ECOSOC) elected India to the executive councils of UNICEF and the World Food Programme, the governing council of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.

Along with India, 22 countries including the United States and Pakistan were re-elected to UNCITRAL.

UNCITRAL, which specialises in commercial law reform, says its mission is “the modernization and harmonization of rules on international business.”
