The Republic of Korea said that the citizens of Syria have a choice-“To act on or watch” the crises and the delegate of Syria replied to it by asking the committee- “Is it possible to conduct free and fair elections when the citizens are not able to step out of their homes?”
The Delegate of France’s GSL speech started with, “The situation occurs not due to the violence of bad people but the silence of good people” and the Delegate proposed to exterminate external intervention, including financial and military aid, to help control the situation and improve the conditions so that voting could occur in Syria. The delegate of Syrian Arab Republic requested for the temperature to be turned down and the chair very kindly offered the delegate her jacket as a display of humanity. To the Chair’s surprise, the Delegate of France rose with an uncomfortable grunt to point out his stomach pains.
The Chair took many occasions to give pointers to the delegates on the way the committee worked and to correct and guide them on the minor mistakes they were making. A gesture required to help the delegates in the next two days and future MUN’s.
The tension between delegates was felt by all the members in the room during an unmoderated caucus. The delegate of France also stated that they did not need the Syrian government to agree with the nations with veto power. The unmoderated caucus was in full swing and would have continued if it weren’t for the Chair stepping in to direct the committee back into the formal session.
The end of the session two came about with an informal speech by the chair for feedback on the developments in committee and recommendations to improve for the further session.
