Once Again, Brazilian President Calls for a More Democratic UN

    The United Nations Organization (UN) must change and cannot remain the same as it was 60 years ago, when it was created, said Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, in a press conference, when asked about the country’s negotiations to get a permanent seat at UN Security Council.

    "The geography has changed, politics have changed, economy has changed, and commercial geography has also changed. It is necessary to have more democracy and representativeness at the UN," justified the President.

    According to Lula, when all continents and political forces become represented at the UN, its decisions will be effectively followed.

    This Wednesday, February 8, Lula began a trip to four African countries (Algeria, Benin, Botswana and South Africa). Algeria was his first stop.

      But there is democracy in the U.N. !
      You would just need two thirds of the votes !

      What is not democracy is Lula attitude to not accept the U.N. voting rights of all the nations included.

      Lula is not the only one to decide what should be or not done in the U.N.!!!!

      This simply demonstrates how arrogant and unfair is Lula and how HE refuses democracy, in the rights AND obligations of ALL the U.N. nations !

      Should he not accept the rules of the U.N. he may as well quit ! That is democracy.
      If there is no rule of law in Brazil due to people like Lula the junkie, there is rule of laws, laws and rules in the U.N., wether it pleases ot not Lula.
