India received 183 of the 188 votes to serve again on the 36-member UN body that guides sustainable development policies and coordinates the activities of several UN units and organisations working development and social and economic issues.

India’s electoral victory came a day after another a day earlier when Neeru Chadha was elected a judge of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in a measure of its influence at the UN.

Pakistan received just a single vote for the ECOSOC.

Japan received 185 votes, the highest number of votes for the three seats from the Asia-Pacific region, and the Philippines, 182.

India will retake its seat in January when its current term ends.
