The UN General Assembly is to vote Thursday to elect five new non-permanent members to the Security Council; Rwanda is widely expected to win the seat for Africa.

Rwanda is accused of interference in the Democratic Republic of Congo but that will not affect the vote.

Rwanda’s’ candidature is supported by the United States, and South Korea and African continent at large.

However, Rwanda must collect 129 votes, or 2/3 of the 193-nation General Assembly, to be elected. Possibilities on any surprises for Rwanda are almost none since Kigali has the backing of African Union and has no competitor.

The other five countries chosen will on January 1 begin a two-year term. They will replace Colombia, Germany, India, Portugal and South Africa.

The five other non-permanent members are Azerbaijan, Guatemala, Morocco, Pakistan and Togo. Their terms will be completed at the end of 2013. Only the five permanent members have veto-wielding power.
