UNSC Non-Permanent Seat: India Voted Against Maldives, Ensured It Lost


Did India vote for the Maldives or Indonesia at the recent elections for the UN Security Council non-permanent seat?
While Male continues to claim India’s support + in the face of reports that the government might have voted against it, diplomatic sources told ToI that India didn’t just vote for Indonesia but also worked to ensure that its hostile Indian Ocean neighbour fared poorly in the election.

Indonesia finally trumped Male’s bid for the Asia-Pacific seat by an overwhelming margin. The Maldives got support from only 46 countries in the secret ballot voting on June 8 against the 144 which voted for Indonesia.
