How are member states seated in the General Assembly?
Last Updated: Jul 30, 2016
Member states are seated by country name in the General Assembly. Each session, the Secretary-General selects the name of a member state to sit in the first seat. The other members follow in English alphabetic order.
The information of who is in the first seat is provided in the Delegate's Handbook, previously called "Information for delegations".
