Indian diplomat Vidisha Maitra elected to UN advisory committee_50.1

Indian diplomat, Vidisha Maitra has been elected to the UN’s Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ). The election was a tightly contested one but Maitra won with 126 UN members supporting her candidature for the only post for the Asia-Pacific group while 64 voted for the opposing candidate who was from Iraq.

India has been a member of the committee since its inception in 1946.  India’s win in this committee comes as India also prepares to take a seat as one of 10 non-permanent members in the UN Security Council for a two year period starting 1 January 2021.

About the UN’s Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ):

  • The committee is one of the most coveted in the United Nations system as it controls the financial and budgetary purse of the UN.
  • The ACABQ performs several functions including the examination of the budget submitted by the UN Secretary-General to the General Assembly and advising the Assembly on administrative and budgetary matters referred to it.
  • The ACABQ is a crucial component in ensuring that resources of the Member states are used to good effect and that mandates are properly funded.
  • embers are elected by the General Assembly, consisting of 193 member states, on the basis of broad geographical representation, personal qualifications and experience and service for a period of three calendar years. Members serve in a personal capacity and not as representatives of Member States.
