Philippines : Filipina elected VP of UN rights council – INQUIRER.net, Philippine News for Filipinos

I’m proud of her achievement but this speaks more about the virtues of ms Quisumbing rather than our nation. You just have to scann the summary killings illegal arrest and other human rights violations against our nation to understand that this is not a yes vote to the institutions in our country rather it is respect for the virtues of the nominee. Congratulations To Dr. Quisumbing!
