The Palestinian Authority don’t have the support in the Security Council to obtain full United Nations membership. They need 9 votes and only can count on the usual suspects - - Russia, China, Gabon, Nigeria, South Africa, Brazil, Lebanon and India - will back them.

There are 15 members of the Security Council, consisting of five veto-wielding permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and 10 elected non-permanent members with two-year terms.
