According to reports, India received 46 out of 53 votes, defeating China, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.

The UNSC is the highest-level governing body for international statistical operations; they are responsible for facilitating the development of concepts and methods and for their nationwide and worldwide execution. The Commission is formed of 24 United Nations member states appointed by the UN Economic and Social Council within a proportional geographical distribution.


 


Business Today reports that five members are from African States, four from Asia-Pacific States, four from Eastern European States, four from Latin American and Caribbean States, and seven members from Western European and other States.


 


Currently, the commission body consists of Japan, Samoa, Kuwait, and the Republic of Korea, whose terms end this year. India’s term begins on the first day of January, next year alongside Argentina, the United States of America, Sierra Leone, Ukraine, Slovenia, and the United Republic of Tanzania.
