Hello. I will really appreciate some help.
1) Is it possible to use "consider" in the context "The US Congress will consider the bill on Friday"?
2) Is it possible to use "implicitly" in the context "He won the elections implicitly" (meaning "he won an outright victory")?
3) Is it possible to use "hard steps" in the context "The country is currently taking hard steps against..."?
4) Is the sentence correct "Thousands of people gathered for protest"? Maybe, "gathered for a protest" or "gathered to protest"?
5) Is it possible to use "hope" in the following way: "He has a hope that his bill will be approved"?
6) Is it possible to say "to overcome the crisis"?
7) Is it possible to say "The UN called to end violence" or does it require "somebody" ("The UN called Nigeria to end...")?
8) Is it possible to use "target" in the context "the target of the meeting is to facilitate..."?
9) Is it possible to say "the country left the UN" (meaning "lost UN membership")?
Thank you very much for all your help.

    1. Correct.

    2. Implicitly means "implied or understood though not directly expressed." In your sentence a better word would be "in a landslide."

    3. Correct.

    4. Your second two sentences are much better than your first.

    5. It would be better to say "He hopes his bill . . ."

    6. Yes.

    7. Better: "The UN called an end to violence." Or "The UN called on Nigeria to end the violence."

    8. Better: "The purpose of the meeting . . ."

    9. O.K.
