The United Nations Security Council is one of the six main organs of the United Nations and is the only organ able to take binding decisions. The organ is composed by 5 permanent members (so called P5), China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and 10 non-permanent members which are elected for a 2-years term by the General Assembly. Each member has a single vote, but each member of the P5 has the possibility to veto decisions.
In MUNOTH 2019, the Security Council will be an advanced committee and will include 15 delegations selected on the basis of the 2017 and 2018 elections.

“The Security Council is the United Nations’ most powerful body, with “primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.” Five powerful countries sit as “permanent members” along with ten elected members with two-year terms. It dispatches military operations, imposes sanctions, mandates arms inspections, deploys election monitors and more.”
