For UNSC Kenya Beats Djibouti 129 to 62 Gaining 16 Votes Overnight UNtransparent

UN GATE, June 18 – In contested elections without observers for UN Security Council seats on June 17 Norway and Ireland beat out Canada (again), while Kenya and Djibouti face a second round of bribes. Video of results here; long video of Inner City Press coverage from UN Gate here.

  The numbers -- UNverified -- for the two races were as follows, with 128 votes required to get or buy a UNSC seat: Norway 130, Ireland 128; Canada 108, losing again. 

  Kenya 113, Djibouti 78. Kenya had to buy 15 votes by June 18. Video of June 18, 9 am here.

  And they did - the result on June 18 was Kenya 129, Djibouti 62, a swing of 16. What was behind it? Watch this site.

Will they sell more to China, like UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has, while banning Inner City Press 715 days and counting and directing that no UN spokesperson answers its questions? Guterres is corrupt.

In the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd, as in the COVID-19 lockdowns, carve outs to curfews were made for the media so that the operations of government could be observed and reported.  

But at the United Nations, not only has secretive Secretary General Antonio Guterres ordered roughed up and banned, now 715 days, Inner City Press which dared about about his personal financial connection to UN briber CEFC China Energy, convicted in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  

Now Nigeria's Tijjani Muhammad-Bande the UN General Assembly President, a position previously purchased by CEFC and before that Ng Lap Seng (who also bought the UN Correspondents Association with $50,000) has banned all media from observing the UN Security Council and other elections he is running, or some say selling, today June 17.  

And on June 16 for the UN noon briefing with Stephane Dujarric and Farhan Haq on unexplained vacations, associate Eri Kaneko cut out and issued a transcript of comments on China that were not issued on video.

This is a set-up for a stolen election, some say. Inner City Press intends to live stream from the gate - watch this site, and @InnerCityPress on Twitter.

Tijjani Muhammad-Bande's spokesperson Reem Abaza, who refuses all questions from Inner City Press, intoned on June 12 (video here) that "all Member States have successfully registered the names of the representative, and an alternate, who will cast their ballot for the elections of non-permanent members of the Security Council, Members of the Social and Economic Council and the President of the 75th session of the General Assembly on the 17th of June. 

"Please note that access to the General Assembly building will be restricted to the voters, tellers, and staff who will be supporting the process. This is to ensure everyone’s safety and to mitigate the spread of the disease.  

"The Department of Global Communications and the Department for General Assembly and Conference Management and our office are coordinating closely to ensure that you will get what you need for your coverage."  

Yes, the UN will decide "what you need" and the propaganda will be served up by DSG's Melissa Fleming, who bans the Press and has no content neutral rules for access to the UN.
