The Political Committee was originally designed as an organ of the General Assembly intended for the stabilization and pacification of situations that not yet required the mandatory power of the Security Council. Although it is given little credit, this committee has aided in the prevention of multiple conflicts, solving them before they even erupted. Although the Political committee does not have a mandatory charter, its suggestions have significant weight and resonate throughout the international community as a warning that if the issue is ignored for the moment it will grow and become a far bigger problem in the future. At times, waiting for a conflict to erupt is not wise, henceforth the Political Committee.
