Bhandari’s re-election reflective of India’s constitutional integrity: MEA

Delhi: Welcoming the re-election of Dalveer Bhandari to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), India on Tuesday said that the extraordinary support from the UN members was reflective of the respect for India’s strong constitutional integrity of the polity.

In a statement, the MEA said the UN Security Council and the General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in support of India and Bhandari received all 15 votes in the UN Security Council and 183 out of the 193 votes in the UN General Assembly.

“The extraordinary support from the UN membership is reflective of the respect for the strong constitutional integrity of the Indian polity and the independence of the judiciary in India,” it said.

Hailing Bhandari’s re-election, Prime Minister termed it as a proud moment and credited External Affairs Ministry Sushma Swaraj and her ministry’s officials for their efforts in ensuring his success.

On her part, Swaraj made a special mention of India’s Permanent Representative at the UN Syed Akbaruddin while hailing her ministry’s team.

“Congratulations to Dalveer Bhandari on his re-election as a of the ICJ. Huge efforts by Team – MEA. Syed Akbaruddin, our Permanent Representative in the UN deserves a special mention,” Sushma twitted.

In a series of tweets, the prime minister also expressed gratitude to members of the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council for “their support and trust in India.”

“Congratulations to EAM @SushmaSwaraj and her entire team at MEA and diplomatic missions for their untiring efforts that have led to India’s re-election to ICJ,” Modi tweeted.

Bhandari, 70, and UK’s Christopher Greenwood were locked in a neck-and-neck fight for re-election as the UN could not decide between them after electing four out of five judges to the ICJ.

BJP president Amit Shah said that Bhandari’s re-election was a “huge diplomatic win” and it was a reflection of a “strong and decisive” leadership.
