The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) deprived Libya of the right to vote in its meetings because Libya had not paid the fees required by the UNGA for two years now.

In a resolution posted on the UNGA’s Facebook page on Monday, the UNGA clarified that according to article (08) of the UN Charter, the member country that delays paying off the required fees to the UNGA cannot keep the right to vote in the UNGA’s meetings if the delayed fees hit 2 consecutive years or more.

It is worth mentioning that the fees that Libya had to pay over the last two years are worth more than two million dollars.
