Magic wand quiz

UN Women is the UN body formed to streamline women's rights activity within the organisation. It is intended to improve representation and push for greater gender equality in health, education, politics, etc. world-wide. The executive board for UN Women will soon be elected. 35 of the 41 board members will be chosen by regional groups.

So, you have a magic wand, you can magically remove any one of the candidates the Asian group is apparently proposing from the list. The options are:
  • Iran,
  • Bangladesh,
  • India,
  • China,
  • Malaysia,
  • Indonesia,
  • South Korea,
  • Japan,
  • Kazakhstan
    Oh, and just for fun, one of the countries proposed to represent emerging donors is Saudi Arabia - that paragon of rights, participation and equality.
