Description Latin American and Caribbean States - One Slot

The contest began on 16 October as essentially a two-way race between Guatemala and Venezuela, and though other countries were nominated, including Barbados, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jamaica, Mexico and Uruguay, none could muster the required majority to gain the seat. Still, Guatemala handily out-polled Venezuela in all but one round, an early tie at 93 votes apiece.

Neither received the required two-thirds vote (which fluctuated between 120-128 on each vote depending on abstentions) and on November 1st, both nations withrew and on November 3rd, Panama was selected as a compromise candidate by the regional group. The General Assembly voted on November 7th to select Panama.

The below chart represents the vote breakdown over the 47 ballots. Source: Wikipedia
