Not a participant in the Special Drawing Rights Department.

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

Percentages of total votes of members in the General Department (424,612) and total votes of participants in the Special Drawing Rights Department (422,012), 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 China, Egypt, Democratic Kampuchea, and South Africa, which did not participate in the 1978 Regular Election of Executive Directors, and of Cape Verde, Djibouti, and Dominica, which became members after that election. The combined votes of those members total 14,097—3.32 per cent of those in the General Department and 3.34 per cent of those in the Special Drawing Rights Department, respectively.
