Grenada is one of eight countries now without a vote at the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Under Article 19 of the Charter, a Member State in arrears in the payment of its dues in an amount that equals or exceeds the contributions due for two preceding years can lose its vote in the General Assembly.

An exception is allowed if the Member State can show that conditions beyond its control contributed to this inability to pay.

As of 29 January 2018, twelve Member States were subject to the provisions of Article 19 of the Charter of the United Nations.

There are currently eight Member States that do not have a vote in the 72nd session of the General Assembly: Central African Republic; Dominica; Equatorial Guinea; Grenada
Libya; Suriname; Venezuela and Yemen.

    I find this rather humiliating for Grenada.

    I surely do not like to have our Homeland in the same company as Maduro & what is happening in Venezuela. I fear that exactly just may be PM Mitchell’s ‘ Playbook ‘ as to why his Luv-Addiction with Chester & Pedro. Troubling !!

    With the huge side cash flows of millions $$$$$ in income from those illegal Diplomatic Passport SALES; token change for UN fees should have been a little saving grace & cover. Power hungry boyzzz not think it through: corruption rules their lives and their actions.
