In an annual game of rotating seating, Thailand won the first front row seat in the United Nations General Assembly Hall for the next session, starting in September, in a drawing performed by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, a spokeswoman for the Assembly said today.
It will replace St. Kitts-Nevis on the right side of the podium for the Assembly’s General Debate, the spokeswoman Frehiwot Bekele said.
The other delegations are seated alphabetically and speak in an order initially determined by tradition and courtesy. Brazil is traditionally the first speaker, followed by the United States of America, as host country for the UN Headquarters.
