RESOLUTION 264 (III)
OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
OF THE UNITED NATIONS,
8 OCTOBER 1948

CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH A STATE,
A PARTY TO THE STATUTE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
BUT NOT A MEMBER OF THE UNITED NATIONS,
MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE ELECTIONS OF MEMBERS OF THE COURT

The General Assembly,

Having received the recommendations of the Security Council with regard to the conditions under which a State which is a party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice but not a member of the United Nations may participate in electing members of the Court,

Resolves

1. That such a State shall be on an equal footing with the Members of the United Nations in respect to those provisions of the Statute which regulate the nominations of candidates for election by the General Assembly ;

2. That such a State shall participate, in the General Assembly, in electing the members of the Court in the same manner as the Members of the United Nations ;

3. That such a State, when in arrears in the payment of its contribution to the expenses of the Court, shall not participate in electing the members of the Court in the General Assembly if the amount of its arrears equals or exceeds the amount of the contribution due from it for the preceding two full years. The General Assembly may, nevertheless, permit such a State to participate in the elections, if it is satisfied that the failure to pay is due to conditions beyond the control of that State (see Charter, Article 19).
