Answer:

The Security Council consists of 15 members. It had 5 permanent members - Russia, USA, UK, France and China. The regional representation of the ten non-permanent members is:

  1. Afro-Asian countries - 5
  2. Latin American countries - 2
  3. West European and other countries - 2
  4. East European countries - 1

The ten non-permanent members of the Security Council are elected by the United Nations General Assembly by a two-third majority for a term of two years. A retiring non-permanent member is not eligible for immediate re-election to the Security Council. The Presidency of the Council is rotated on a monthly basis, according to the English alphabetical listing of the  member states of the Council.
