This year, the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) will be carrying out the Philippine Election 2022 International Observer Mission (IOM).
The IOM is led and supported by a distinguished group of international leaders:
- Sharan Burrow (General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation)
- Séverine de Laveleye (Member of Belgian Chamber of Representatives, Ecolo)
- Barry Naylor (Chaplain, Trinity Hospital Leicester)
- Lee Rhiannon (Former Member of Australian Senate, Australian Greens)
- Michael Yoshi (Member of Global Council, International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines)
- Chris Ferguson (Former Secretary General, World Communion of Reformed Churches)
- Xavier Cotillas Romero (President, Catalan Association for Peace)
There are early signals to suggest that the 2022 election in the Philippines will include intensifying political conflict, corruption, and rampant human rights violations, including the threat of extension of Duterte’s rule through legislative or military means.
We have initiated the IOM in response to a call for solidarity and support from the Filipino people in their struggle to assert their basic civil and political rights, including the right to vote without fear or intimidation. These elections occur in the context of ongoing and escalating repression of the Filipino people’s collective rights to peace, development, and self-determination.

The IOM launched at the start of the campaign period on February 7, 2022 and will continue until June 2022. We are currently recruiting election observers to travel to the Philippines.
