The next date for the election of a judge in the International Court of Justice will be announced soon, a UN official has said, after a battle between India and the UK for the seat remained deadlocked as neither candidate managed to get the requisite numbers of votes, news agency PTI reported on Wednesday.

The battle between Dalveer Bhandari, 70, from India and Britain’s Christopher Greenwood for the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) seat remained deadlocked as neither could get the requisite numbers of votes in the latest face-off, even after 11 round of elections in the UN General Assembly and Security Council.

Six rounds of voting were held in the General Assembly on Monday, and in total, 11 rounds have been held to date, said Brenden Varma, Spokesperson of the UN General Assembly President.
