Question and answer
Q: China (with over one billion people) and Monaco (with approximately 33,000 people) have the same voting power in the United Nations. Please select the best answer from the choices provided T F
A: No. In addition to its 193 member states, the United Nations welcomes many international organizations, entities, and non-member states (currently only two) as observers. Observer status is granted by a United Nations General Assembly resolution. [ The status of a Permanent Observer is based purely on practice, and there are no provisions for it in the United Nations Charter.[1] Observers have
the right to speak at United Nations General Assembly meetings, participate in procedural votes, and to sponsor and sign resolutions,[clarification needed] but not to vote on resolutions and other substantive matters. Various other rights (e.g., to speak in debates, to submit proposals and amendments, the right of reply, to raise points of order and to circulate documents, etc.) are given selectively to some observers only. So far, the EU is the only international organisation to hold these enhanced powers.[2] There is a distinction between state and non-state observers. Non-Member States of the United Nations, which are members of one or more specialized agencies, can apply for the status of Permanent Observer state.[1] The non-state observers are the international organizations and other entities. Non-member observer states are arranged for seating in the General Assembly Hall immediately after the Member States and before the other observers.[3] ]
