The U.N. General Assembly elected on June 17 former Turkish Ambassador Volkan Bozkır to be its president ahead of the 75th General Debate in September.

In a secret ballot vote Bozkır, who was unopposed for the post, received 178 ballots in support as 11 nations abstained.

“I am thankful to all UN member states, for electing me with an overwhelming majority, as the President of the 75th UN General Assembly,” Bozkır said on Twitter. “As we mark the 75th anniversary of the UN, I will guide the efforts to contribute to international peace, in the challenging times we live in.”
