General Assembly 4 started the morning with discussions on two resolutions, the first to do with Somaliland and the second to do with democracy in African countries.
During the first resolution, the delegate of Ethiopia proposed an amendment – to turn Somaliland into a free state instead of a federal state. Delegates further debated on the amendment with an open debate. This amendment was passed. To determine if the resolution as a whole would pass or fail there was a right to divide the house in which the delegates had to answer with yeah or nay to the resolution. The resolution failed.
The second resolution discussed before the break was from the delegate of Ghana. One of the amendments requested was from the delegate of China that lead to an intense and strong line of debates until the break.
One of the chairs, Mahnur Baig, stepped in to be the delegate of North Korea and supported the amendment from the delegate of China.
The delegate of Algeria enjoyed the debates and even said that they were the most controversial topics.
“It was really intense in the beginning but now it’s fun,” said the delegate of Australia.
The delegate of the United States also said that the debates had been really interesting.
