The U.N. General Assembly has scheduled an election Dec. 6 to choose Jordan for a two-year Security Council term, replacing Saudi Arabia, which refused to accept the seat it won in November and denounced the council's inability to resolve the Syrian civil war.
Jordan emerged among the Asian and Middle East nations as the preferred replacement candidate, and is widely expected to win the Security Council term in this unprecedented election. No other nations have said they would contest the balloting.
Two weeks ago, Jordan dropped out of a packed list of candidates for a seat on the Human Rights Council, leaving Saudi Arabia an uncontested path to win a seat on the U.N.'s top human rights body.
