Not a participant in the Special Drawing Account.

Voting power varies on certain matters pertaining to the General Account with use of the Fund’s resources in that Account. In voting on matters relating exclusively to the Special Drawing Account, only the number of votes allotted to members which are participants may be cast.

Percentages of total votes of members in the General Account (324,665) and total votes of participants in the Special Drawing Account (319,355), respectively. The sum of the individual percentages may differ from the percentages of the totals because of rounding.

This total does not include the votes of Cambodia, Comoros, China, and South Africa, which did not participate in the 1976 Regular Election of Executive Directors, and of Guinea-Bissau, which became a member after that election. The combined votes of the five members total 10,251 votes—3.16 per cent of those in the General Account and 3.21 per cent of those in the Special Drawing Account, respectively.
