AFP also gave details about the Friday voting: “In the race for a seat for Eastern Europe, Azerbaijan (74 votes), Slovenia (67) and Hungary (52) fell well short of the required majority in the first round. Hungary dropped out and in the ninth round, Azerbaijan had 113 votes to Slovenia’s 77. Diplomats said there could be a backlash against adding another European Union member to the council where Britain, France, Germany and Portugal already hold seats. Late Friday, the General Assembly called off the contest until Monday”.
