Not only that, Algeria was elected on Friday with a very large majority of 185 votes out of the 190 countries participating in the vote, as a member of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for a three-year term, from January 1, 2025, to December 31, 2027.

Through this election, Algeria's permanent representative to the United Nations, Amar Bendjama, will represent the African Group alongside his counterparts elected from other regional groups as vice-president.

Additionally, by assuming the role of vice-president of the General Assembly, Algeria will contribute to the conduct and direction of the plenary sessions of the UN General Assembly from September 2024 to September 2025.

Among the key events of the 79th session of the UN General Assembly is the "Summit of the Future," which will mark the high-level segment of the session in September 2024.

This appointment comes at a time when Africa faces significant challenges such as completing decolonization, combating poverty, promoting sustainable development, and ensuring food security.

With this election, which took place on June 7, 2024, in New York, during the session of the UN General Assembly, Algeria becomes a member of this principal UN body for the eighth time in its history. Algeria previously served on the council for the periods 1964-1966, 1979-1981, 1983-1985, 1990-1992, 1998-2000, 2007-2009, and 2011-2013.

This brilliant election reflects the confidence Algeria enjoys within the UN and marks a clear recognition of its capacity to contribute expertise and commitment to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Algeria thus further consolidates its presence within the most influential bodies of the United Nations.

Furthermore, Algeria remains committed to multilateral cooperation and global development, and to promoting the core values at the heart of the UN's mission, including peace, development, and human rights.

The Economic and Social Council represents one of the UN's principal organs and serves as the primary platform for discussing economic, social, cultural, health, human rights, women's, and youth issues. It is also responsible for coordinating the activities of relevant UN bodies, agencies, and programs.
