UNITED NATIONS:  India has won elections to two subsidiary bodies of a UN organ focussed on social and economic issues. 



India, along with 12 other members, was elected to the Committee for Programme and Coordination (CPC), a subsidiary body of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The country garnered the most number of votes in the Asian group, with 49 out of 50 members of ECOSOC voting in its favour.

"India tops Asian group again @Un elections. 49 of 50 members of Economic & Social Council vote India to Committee for Program & Coordination,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin tweeted yesterday.

The CPC is the main subsidiary organ of the Economic and Social Council and the General Assembly for planning, programming and coordination.

The 20 members included Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Algeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Croatia, Czech Republic, Russia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Cuba.
