In accordance with the Security Council's rotation rules, whereby the ten non-permanent UNSC seats rotate among the various regional blocs into which UN member states traditionally divide themselves for voting and representation purposes, the five available seats are allocated as follows:
- Two for Africa
- One for the Asia-Pacific Group
- One for Latin America and the Caribbean
- One for the Eastern European Group
The five members will serve on the Security Council for the 2022–23 period.
