Is it acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No Its Not

    I do not believe it is acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes. In fact, I feel if this is happening, then it should be grounds for expulsion out of the United Nations, not only for the assembly member, but for the country as well. Those votes should be in line with what is best for the citizens of the country they represent, not the highest bidder.

  • Who could buy them?

    The UN general assembly passes resolutions very often, almost none of which are binding, and almost all of which are inconsequential to the most powerful countries in the world. Who cares is a tiny country sells their vote in the general assembly? The important votes are in the security council, and those votes are far too expensive.

  • It is not acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes.

    It is not acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes. The UN General Assembly should vote in the way that best reflects the views of each country's citizens, not a large organization that is paying large sums of money for a country to vote one way or another.

  • No It Is Not

    I believe that if the members of the United Nations General Assembly are allowed to sell their votes, then the UN has been under minded and is virtually useless. The purpose of the United Nations can not be followed through on if the votes of the members are being purchased by other bodies, corporations, or people.

  • It is not acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes.

    It is not acceptable for United Nations General Assembly members to sell their votes. This should not be allowed to happen. However, I am doubting whether or not this will ever be changed or challenged. They should not be allowed to profit from the sell of their votes but this is nothing new and will continue.
