Elon Musk Advocates India’s Permanent Seat on UN Security Council

According to billionaire tech magnate Elon Musk, it is “absurd” that India does not have a permanent seat on the UN Security Council despite being the most populous country on earth. Musk called for revamping of the of the United Nations organs.

The Tesla and X owner made this comment after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres raised concerns about the absence of any African nation in the list of permanent members of the UNSC.

“Institutions must reflect today’s world, not that of 80 years ago. September’s Summit of the Future will be an opportunity to consider global governance reforms & re-build trust,” Guterres wrote on X.

Responding to Guterres’ post, Michael Eisenberg, a US-born Israeli capitalist, raised the issue of India’s representation.

Musk entered into the debate and said, “At some point, there needs to be a revision of the UN bodies.”

“The problem is that those with excess power don’t want to give it up. India not having a permanent seat on the Security Council, despite being the most populous country on Earth, is absurd,” Musk wrote on in his response on X.

At present, the five permanent members of the UNSC are China, France, Russia, the UK and the US with the veto power.
