Column 3 shows the number of the meeting of the Security Council at which the vote was taken.




Column 4 - subject
  1. The heading of the vetoed draft resolution appears in Column 4.


Column 5 - resolution would have…
  1. The most important elements of the resolution are paraphrased, introduced each time with the provisions of the draft resolution words “Resolution would have …”.


Column 6 - remarks
  1. Remarks contain information about any additional votes taken on sections of the draft resolution and any points of interests, such as the fact that a member did not participate in the vote because it was party to the dispute being considered (Article 27(3) of the Charter see vetoes 1 and 10). When a member did not participate in the vote for reasons other than those stipulated in Article 27 of the Charter (see vetoes 122 and 134) such non-participation is considered to be a way of registering opposition without resorting to a negative vote and the details therefore appear under the “voting pattern” in Column 3.


Column 7 – Charter language
  1. Significant use of Charter language in the text of the draft resolution and references to Chapters VI and VII are quoted, together with an indication of whether the quotation is from the preamble or an operative paragraph.


Column 8 - vetoing member
  1. Column 8 shows the vetoing member, or members, together with their veto total.


Column 9 – pattern of voting
  1. The figures for the pattern of voting record first the number of affirmative votes, followed by the number of negative votes and finally the number of abstentions. Where possible, the names of those countries other than the vetoing power whose representatives cast negative votes or abstained have also been recorded, as well as those members which did not participate in the vote.




  1. The level of accuracy of the table is generally that of the United Nations Yearbook. Resolutions and meeting records are available at http://www.un.org/Depts/dhl/resguide/scact.htm Another useful source is “The Procedure of the Security Council” by Sydney D. Bailey and Sam Daws (third edition 1998 Clarendon Press Oxford).
