Dispute Erupts Between African Union Members At UN, Gabon Ires Fellow Africans

A bitter dispute erupted between African Union members over a non-permanent seat on the Security Council has broken into the open 
Heated arguments started over the normally placid elections by the UN General Assembly for one of the two non-permanent seats reserved for African countries on the UN Security Council.

Ghana and Gabon were overwhelmingly elected on 11 June, but rivals for Gabon’s seat – Chad and Congo-Kinshasa – have accused it of flouting the delicate conventions of the New York-based assembly, risking chilly isolation during its tenure, which runs from 2022 to the end of 2023.
