POLAND’S CANDIDACY TO THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL
Poland officially declared its candidacy for the UN Security Council for the term 2018-2019 in March 2009. Our expectations regarding possible membership in the Council are primarily to increase the prestige and visibility of Poland on the international stage.
Elections to the UN Security Council for the term 2018-2019 will be held in June 2017 in New York. The UN General Assembly will then choose five of the ten non-permanent members of the Security Council.
If Poland succeeds in securing the mandate of a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council then our term on the Council will start on 1 January 2018.
