India’s Nominee Dalveer Bhandari Re-elected As A Judge in International Court of Justice (ICJ)

India’s nominee to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Dalveer Bhandari has been re-elected as a Judge to the fifth and the last seat of the world court after Britain withdrew its candidate from the election.

Justice Bhandari received 183-193 votes in the General Assembly and secured all the 15 votes in the Security Council after separate and simultaneous elections were held at the UN headquarters in New York.

Britain's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Matthew Rycroft, in a statement said it decided to withdraw Sir Chris Greenwood as a candidate for re-election as a Judge of the International Court of Justice.

"The UK has concluded that it is wrong to continue to take up the valuable time of the Security Council and the UN General Assembly with further rounds of elections," he said.

Britain has congratulated Justice Dalveer Bhandari on being re-elected as a judge to the international court of Justice.
