Sierra Leone secures a coveted non-permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has welcomed five new members for the 2024-2025 term, including Sierra Leone, Algeria, Guyana, Republic of Korea, and Slovenia. Sierra Leone’s election to the UNSC marks a significant milestone in its international journey, as it secures a coveted non-permanent seat after 53 years. The nation’s progress and growing stature as a “liberal, progressive, confident, and enterprising” entity have been widely recognized by observers, as evidenced by the overwhelming endorsement of 188 countries. Sierra Leone’s leadership role in advocating for UNSC reform has been instrumental in securing this landmark achievement.

As the current chair of the African Union Committee of 10 (C-10), Sierra Leone is poised to amplify the collective African voice within the Council, alongside fellow C-10 member Algeria. Their presence promises to propel the C-10’s agenda for a more representative and inclusive UNSC, reflecting the realities of the 21st century

With these new members, the UNSC embarks on a crucial chapter, navigating a complex global landscape riddled with ongoing conflicts and emerging threats. As the world watches, the five newcomers hold the potential to breathe fresh air into the Council’s deliberations, fostering collaboration and seeking innovative solutions to safeguard peace and security for all.
