The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA, GA) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations and the only one in which all member nations have equal representation. Its powers are: to oversee the budget of the United Nations, to appoint the non-permanent members to the Security Council, to receive reports from other parts of the United Nations and to make recommendations in the form of General Assembly Resolutions. As such, to execute their many functions, the GAs have established a wide number of subsidiary organs.
The United Nations General Assembly First Committee is one of six main committees at the General Assembly of the United Nations. It deals with disarmament and international security matters.
