India set to win non permanent member of UNSC

India along with Mexico and Kenya will get elected 
as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for a two-year term starting in January 2021.

The UN Security Council has 10 non-permanent members besides the five veto-wielding permanent ones--Britain, China, France, Russia and the US.

This will be the eighth time India will sit at the horseshoe shaped table. India was elected for 1950-1951, 1967-1968, 1972-1973, 1977-1978, 1984-1985, 1991-1992 and 2011-2012 in the past.
