The General Assembly is one of the six main organs of the United Nations and the only one in which all Member States have equal representation to discuss and work together on a wide array of international issues covered by the UN Charter, such as development, peace and security, and international law.
All UN Member States are represented in the General Assembly. Each Member State has one vote. Decisions on such key issues as international peace and security, admitting new members and the UN budget are decided by a two-thirds majority. Other matters are decided by a simple majority.
