General Assembly Regional Committee - GRULAC 1
Group of Latin America and Caribbean Countries 1
About this Committee
The Latin American and Caribbean Group (GRULAC for short) has 33 members (17% of all UN members). Its territory is almost exactly that of South and Central America and the Caribbean; the differences arise from the presence of dependent territories of European countries. GRULAC has 2 non-permanent seats on the Security Council. The Group also has 10 seats on the United Nations Economic and Social Council and 8 seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council. In the rotation of the post of the President of the United Nations General Assembly, the group is eligible for having its nationals elected to this post in years ending with 3 and 8; most recently, Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua was elected to this position in 2008.
