Italian Guy , I don't think Italy has Bid for a UNSC seat ?

I belive Storng contenders are India, Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, Germany and South Aferica . .....they all have bid for a Seat and currently working on gathering Support.

Italy and Pakistan have actually jointly Voed to block the UNSC expansion because ..............Italy is Against Germany's canditure and Pakistan against India's.

Form what i know Italy says Germany By Bidding for a permenent Seat has threatned the EU unity and........... EU as a whole should be included not Germany

It's getting Interesting Argentina opposes Brazil's bid, Italy that of Germany, South Korea Japan's , while India has had to contend with Pakistan

But the thing is first hurdle is getting Support of the 5 permenant members because one veto and 1/3 rd majority will be useless first get 5 votes them work for the 1./3 majority

It's already a pointlessly ineffective body -- lets just give every nation on the planet a veto and be done with it.

Seriously, if more vetos are added, it only makes the UN that much more ineffective as a system.

No VETO more.

Just make it 7 nations UNSC:
PRC, Russia, India, France, Germany, UK, USA

Just votes, 4:3 then deal done.

They need 2 members from Asia, 2 from Africa, 1 from Europe and 1 from South America.
6 new members in all.
From Asia its gonna be India and Japan, from Africa Nigeria and South Africa, from Europe Germany and from South America, Brazil.

These nations are the top nations to get UN Security Council seats, all other nations like Argentina and Italy can only get temporary 2 year seats.

To get a seat in the UNSC, they see how much a nation has representation in the UN and how much is the nations military and economic might.
India if considered is well above the norms.
