UNHRC Presidency

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) presidency rotates each year between the regions. The candidates are chosen based on consensus within the regional group. The Asian Pacific group, which was supposed to take this mantle, failed to agree on the candidate or even hold a vote within the group. This forced the council to hold vote among all 47 members. This led to Fiji ambassador to become the UNHRC president for 2021.
