The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is the main policy-making organ of the Organization. Comprising all
Member States, it provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of
international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations. Each of the 193 Member States of
the United Nations has an equal vote.
The UNGA also makes key decisions for the UN, including:
- Appointing the Secretary-General on the recommendation of the Security Council
- Electing the non-permanent members of the Security Council
- Approving the UN budget
