Grenada Recovers Vote at the UN

George, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) Grenada announced cancellation of its debt with the United Nations (UN) with which it has recovered its right to vote there, reported the CMC Caribbean agency today.

This country, along with St. Lucia and Dominica, was among the three Caribbean nations in arrears with the U.N.

Quoted by the CMC, U.N. official Allison Watson noted that Granada paid $40,000 and can now vote at that institution.

Under Article 19 of the U.N. Charter, a member of the United Nations which is in arrears in the payment of its financial contributions to the Organization shall have no vote at the General Assembly if the amount of its arrears is equal to or exceeds the amount of contributions owed for two full preceding years.
