The IPU 140 Assembly General has decided to put the Dutch proposal regarding offering financial support to the hurricane hit Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

The proposal was approved by 1,011 votes, which are more than two thirds of the IPU members. Accordingly, it was approved as an additional topic on the IPU 140 agenda to be discussed on Monday.
However, the proposal regarding the protection of the Palestinian people and rejection of the Israeli sovereignty on Jerusalem and Golan Heights got only 491 votes, which disqualified it from being put on the IPU 140 agenda.

The statues and rules of the IPU stipulate that the proposed topic should have two third majority votes by the member states to be approved as an additional topic on the agenda of the assembly general.
