Update – Azerbaijan Makes the UNSC

Today was the Azerbaijan-Slovenia showdown over the Eastern European seat. After17 inconclusive ballots, Azerbaijan was in the lead by 116 to 77 but still 13 votes short of the two-thirds needed.  Slovenia, in a spirit of “OK already, we can’t win so let’s all go home,” withdrew from the race and Azerbaijan was elected. Congrats to the Azeris. As the saying goes, “the 18th time’s the charm.”
