United Nations: India was reelected by the UN General Assembly (UNGA) Wednesday to a three-year term on the Economic and Social Council (EcoSoc).

India's reelection to the EcoSoc comes a week after its reelection to the UN Human Rights Council, a powerful body of the UN.

The UN Charter gives the EcoSoc a broad mandate covering human rights and economic, social, cultural, educational and health matters. The 54-member body is empowered to make recommendations on these subjects to the UNGA and member states and convene conferences. It also cooperates with non-governmental social, cultural, developmental and religious organisations and gives selected ones a consultative status.

Pakistan was also among the 18 countries elected to the EcoSoc Wednesday.
