United Nations Security Council Resolution 1987, adopted by acclamation at a closed meeting on June 17, 2011, having considered the question of the recommendation for the appointment of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the Council recommended to the General Assembly that Mr. Ban Ki-moon be appointed for a second term of office from January 1, 2012, to December 31, 2016.[1]

Ban's election was uncontested and nations had approved of his decision immediately.[2] The vote was delayed due to disagreements in the Latin American and Caribbean regional grouping over whether to endorse Ban as he was the sole candidate.[3][4] Support for his re-election was also given unofficially by North Korea.[5]

His appointment was subsequently endorsed by the General Assembly.[6]
