the scourge of war is on the occasion of its 70th anniversary facing a severe crisis Threats to international peace and security are more serious today than at any time since its inception The “use of force” with or without the UNSC’s authorisation and the arming of rebels has resulted in much turmoil Iraq 2003 Libya 2011 the ongoing crisis in Syria and Ukraine 2014 constitute at the very least a severe indictment of the UN and at its very core the functioning of the security council One could argue that this is a mess entirely of our own making It is after all the member states whose policies are ultimately responsible for the rise of the ISIS and the ever-increasing terrorist threats Could a new secretary-general make a difference Kofi Annan in 2003 and the recent Chilcot report characterised the military actions in Iraq as lacking legal sanction and correctly so The job description should perhaps specify that along with the requisite experience she/he should have no hesitation to stand up disagree and point fingers The situation has if anything gone from bad to worse A security council hamstrung by the exercise of vetoes even in situations of mass atrocities member states accused of war crimes buying their way out after being publicly incriminated and an overall atmosphere of impunity poses an existential threat to the UN Unless rectified the UN runs the risk not of disappearing — multilateral institutions seldom wither away — but suffering a thousand cuts and ultimately becoming the world’s largest non-governmental organisation At stake is the unique and unparalleled convening power of the UN which carries both moral and legal weight Would the world be worse off without the UN Most certainly yes Without the UN another world body would need to be recreated The UN has done stellar work in the normative field especially on human rights gender equality and sustainable development The International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court are the obvious institutional examples in matters pertaining to the rule of law Without the UN the international order will be vulnerable to domination and manipulation by a few There are twelve declared candidates in the field for the post many with truly impressive credentials Irina Bokova of Bulgaria UNESCO’s DG since 2001; Helen Clark former PM of New Zealand and administrator of the UNDP since 2009; Costa Rica’s Christiana Figueres the executive secretary of the UNFCCC since 2016; Natalia Gherman foreign minister of Moldova; Antonio Guterres former PM of Portugal and the UN high commissioner for refugees 2005-15; Vuk Jeremic former Serbian foreign minister and president of the UN General Assembly 2012-13; Srgjan Kerim former foreign minister of Macedonia and a former president of the general assembly; the Slovakian foreign minister Miroslav Lajcak; Igor Luksic former PM and current foreign minister of Montenegro; Argentina’s foreign minister Susana Malcorra who was till recently chef de cabinet to the secretary general Ban Ki-moon; Croatia’s foreign minister Vesna Pusic; and Danilo Turk former president of Slovenia and the assistant SG of the UN According to the principle and system of geographic rotation in the UN the ninth secretary-general should preferably be from Eastern Europe Eight of the twelve candidates are East European There is also a groundswell in favour of a woman SG Six of the twelve are women An ideal combination thus would be a woman from East Europe Three of the twelve meet that criterion An interesting innovation introduced for the election of the ninth SG is that candidates will take part in a “beauty parade” at the GA But all said and done it will be “business as usual” The GA will only be left to endorse the choice of the security council Since the permanent members of the council wield a veto the candidate finally selected must be acceptable to the US and Russia two countries that have not hesitated to use the veto in the past This alone increases the chances of the SG being more secretary and less general It is unlikely that any of the twelve candidates will establish a decisive or even a commanding lead in the first straw poll It is equally conceivable that none of them will meet the “acceptability cut” of the permanent members A final choice is likely to emerge by October when Russia will hold the rotating presidency of the council The writer is a former diplomat and the author of an upcoming book ‘Perilous Interventions: The Security Council and the Politics of Chaos’ For all the latest

was it his new big pitch for his party before the assembly elections Whatever the answer his visit seems to have provided a big boost to BJP’s unit in the state “His coming to Kashmir on this auspicious day indicts how Kashmir is close to his heart and he would make sure that lives of people are back on track” Khalid Jahangir BJP spokesman for Kashmir said Visiting Siachen on Thursday the first in ten years by any prime minister Modi said: "India shares the grief of Jammu and Kashmir The government stands with the people in rehabilitation efforts” He announced Rs 570 crore for rebuilding homes damaged in the recent floods and Rs 175 crore for renovation of six major hospitals in Kashmir But what has irked certain political leaders in Kashmir is a hint to bypass the state government by saying the assistance for rebuilding ravaged houses could be given directly to bank accounts of the flood victims “The government of Jammu and Kashmir had not asked for Rs 750 crore but Rs 45000 crore There is a need of massive rehabilitation process in Kashmir winter is approaching people in Kashmir were expecting a lot from the PM but they are disappointed” senior National Conference leader Mehboob Beg said Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his interaction with soldiers in Siachen PTI Political analysts however say apart from addressing the domestic constituency PM Modi also wanted to send a signal to Pakistan by visiting Siachen “He is a smart politician and apart from making a political point in Kashmir he also tried to send a signal to Pakistan by visiting Siachen were soldiers live in extreme conditions” Noor Mohmmad Baba a political scientist based in Kashmir said “At the same he would like to repeat in Kashmir what the BJP has achieved in Maharashtra and Haryana but electoral mathematics doesn’t seem to favour the BJP in its mission 44” Baba said The BJP which has never won a single seat in Muslim majority Kashmir valley has set its eyes on the five assembly constituencies in Kashmir valley to achieve it mission 44+ It expects to score high in the Jammu region which accounts for 37 seats But it won’t be easy The party hopes to benefit from a three-way split in Muslim votes among National Conference People’s Democratic Party and the Congress in the valley It is also targeting at least two seats in the Ladakh region In Kashmir it is up against the People Democratic Party which is likely to bag a majority of the 46 seats in the Valley two in Ladakh and at least 10 seats in Muslim-majority areas of Jammu That makes the BJP and the PDP two major players on the state The BJP is expected to replace the Congress as the kingmaker in state politics “These visits by the prime minister to Kashmir undoubtedly will yield results in favor of BJP in coming assembly elections It has also helped us in boosting the morale of the party cadre Our workers are upbeat about the coming elections and we will surprise every regional political party" state BJP leader Fayaz Ahmed Bhat said Jehangir the BJP spokesperson says the party believes in development and its agenda is clear The Congress the NC and the PDP are all set to become history in the coming assembly elections as their misdeeds stand exposed “You will see it happening in Kashmir in coming assembly elections The NC and the Congress leaders despite ruling the state for six decades have only built big bungalows and have amassed huge wealth for themselves Modiji will rebuild Kashmir These people who are angry wanted to even siphon off this money also” he said However people whose house has collapsed in the floods say they are largely happy if the Centre decides to directly transfer the money into their accounts “I don’t trust the state government It would be better if the PM Modi would make sure the money reach’s us directly into our account but we need it now before the winter starts” Ghulam Qadir Dar whose house collapsed in the devastating floods in Bemina told
