Until now, five resolutions have called for a universal moratorium on executions and each time they have been supported by a growing number of countries. Between 2012 and 2014, 4 countries left the moratorium opponent side: Suriname, Eritrea, Fiji, Equatorial Guinea and Niger. Expectations are high for the next vote, planned for December 2016 in New York. The international community expects all countries to vote in line with their own national situations.
