The delegation of UK in their last day of URJCmun. (Blanca Martínez)
“This is the end, hold a breath and count to ten”, as Adele said. The final moment has come. Our delegates today look tired, some of them are hangover, but they are strong enough to overcome the morning. The final session begins. Resolutions are coming.
UK delegation is decided. They want to propose a motion in order to introduce the announcement. There have to be two delegations in favour and two against the final document. After some confussions about the way of proposing the motion, UK finally sets it. And they have an alliance with Canada, who explains that they are in favour and all countries should do it the same way. But it’s far enough. Egypt doesn’t support the motion because “we want women to feel safe”, and France endorse it.
Once they all agree, Vietnam sets a motion to request the nominal vote. Forty delegations vote in favour, four against and two abstain from it. It seems like they’ve won elections. This is historical. UN WOMEN finally have resolutions! And they get it by the one an only alliance of France, Switzerland, Vietnam, Egypt and Algeria. Everybody clap feeling proud of them. It was difficult to come to an agreement in this commettee. In fact, they only have had time to discuss one of the two topics proposed at the beggining (someone said on the gossip box that they should have discussed quickly so that they could have debate both resolutions).
So in order to close the final session, chairs (lovely, by the way) announce that they’re going to give prizes in several categories. The MUN prize of best dressed goes to Affghanistan! Vietnam receives the award for being the most likely to become a dictator (really deserved), France is the most flirtratious one (he is the person who has recieve more messages from the gossip box). The most beautiful smile is for Saudi Arabia, and the most hangover is Colombia.
Now it’s time to express our gratitude to everyone who has made this possible. We’re sure that our delegates’ve had a really good time, and their attitude to make things on an empahic way has been one of the most beautiful thing of this committee. The world is safe with you.
