India has won all the five elections it contested at the UN this year, following last year’s reelection 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.
