IMO MALAYSIA2020to2021

Malaysia has been re-elected to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Council under Category C for the 2020-2021 term. The decision was reached during the IMO Council elections on 29 November, 2019, as part of the 31st Regular Session of the IMO Assembly at the IMO Headquarters in London, United Kingdom. It is Malaysia’s 8th consecutive term on the body.

Malaysia had the third highest number of votes among 24 candidates in the same category, with 142 votes in total. In the previous election for the 2018-2019 term, Malaysia ranked ninth highest, with 131 votes.

This re-election recorded the highest number of votes received by the country since Malaysia became an IMO Council Member in 2006. Such an achievement is a strong reflection of the maritime community's continued confidence in Malaysia's role as a council Member.
