Antonio Guterres now has to be formally recommended to the 193 member General Assembly for approval of his candidacy. Guterres will be stepping down by the end of 2016 after serving two terms.

The Security Council will be adopting a resolution, traditionally behind closed doors, recommending that the General Assembly appoint Mr. Guterres for a five-year term from Jan. 1, 2017. This resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes to pass.
