Malawi President Dr Lazarus Chakwera on Thursday, September 24, voiced concerned over the status of the United Nations Security Council reforms, saying:”We call for two permanent seats with voting power and five non-permanent seats for Africa.”
Chakwera was speaking virtually from Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe in his first statement at the general debate of the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
The session is running under the theme: ‘The Future We Want, the United Nations We Need; Reaffirming Our Collective Commitment to Multirateralism–Confronting COVID-19 Through Effective Multirateral Action.”
The President said:” Malawi reiterates the call for urgency in advancing reforms with full representation of Africa in line with the Ezulwini consensus of the African Union.”
He said the continent needs a “UN that fully meets Africa’s needs in peace process, which can only be achieved if Africa is involved in making such decisions.”
Chakwera said in view of the incessant conflicts that are currently tearing down the African continent and retarding its progress, ” the reforms are long overdue.”
