Iran's UN Voting Rights Suspended

"Sing da Blues, or pay yer dues."

Faux reports that Iran is in arrears; no chingee, no votee.

In a letter to General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir, Guterres said that the theocratic regime, along with countries including the Central African Republic and Somalia, are in arrears. Iran will be unable to vote, but a prior resolution allowed some countries, including Somalia to continue to vote in the current session, which will end in September.

Iran would need to pay $16,251,298 to have its voting rights restored, compared to the $1,443,640 owed by Somalia and $29,395 owed by the Central African Republic.
One commenter astutely notes that Iran's vote was suspended, not for funding & supporting terrorism, but for non-payment of dues, which should tell you all you need to know about the UN.
