AHouse Democrat has filed a privileged resolution to expel Representative George Holding from Congress. Holding is tapping into unused absentee ballots in his North Carolina district to help him win reelection. The resolution also alleges Holding has a conflict of interest since his campaign received donations from PACs linked to associates on the North Carolina State Board of Elections. Representative Holding denied these allegations and called it a “phony” attempt to overturn the will of the people.

The United Nations has overwhelmingly passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. The demands, backed by 170 countries, have further pushed the warring sides to find a lasting resolution to their conflict. The resolution also calls upon the two sides to provide life-saving assistance, including humanitarian aid, to civilians affected by the violence. This is the first time the UN has passed a resolution in over a decade that directly aims to bring an end to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

At the United Nations General Assembly, a majority of countries voted to pass a resolution calling for a truce in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. This resolution acknowledged the urgency of the situation and called on both sides to respect international humanitarian law, provide access for essential medical supplies and goods, and ensure the delivery of humanitarian aid. Sadly, the United States and a few other countries voted against the resolution, but most of the world has shown a unified effort in support of a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict.

The United Nations chief António Guterres has called for an end to the Israel-Hamas war and the parties’ engagement in a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Arab League leaders echoed his call, urging resumption of dialogue to restore calm and facilitate the much needed humanitarian aid into Gaza. In addition, the league members stressed the importance of upholding international law and protecting civilian lives. These calls for a peaceful solution are being mandated in the hope of ending the conflict and restoring stability to the region.

Dozens of senators from both parties, led by Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), have signed a resolution expressing their solidarity with striking autoworkers. The resolution calls on GM to meet the union’s demands for fair wages, job security and more. It also urges the company to continue its partnership with the United Auto Workers to illustrate the importance of union-protected collective bargaining rights. The resolution is seen as a show of support for those who are standing up for themselves and the labor movement as a whole.
