Release of Final Report of the International Observers Mission

The Final Report of the Philippine Elections 2022 International Observers Mission will be released on June 28. The results of the Final Report will be presented at two different Zoom events on June 28:

Guns, goons, and gold.

Elections in the Philippines have always been plagued with corruption and cheating. But the 2022 Presidential and Senatorial elections were different. Social media lies and red tagging were huge new factors. These elections were not free, honest, or fair.

Through its International Observers Mission (IOM), the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines investigated and documented dozens of human rights violations related to the elections.

Over 60 election observers from 11 countries travelled to the Philippines to take part in the IOM. From April to June, they travelled to different areas in nine regions across the Philippines.

Through witness testimony and evidence-gathering, the observers documented widespread failure of the electronic voting system, vote buying, red-tagging of all opposition campaigns, and acts of violence against certain partylists and their supporters.

The Interim Report, released May 19, and the Final Report, which will be released June 28, detail the findings of the IOM over the course of the election campaign period and the post-election period.

The reports make recommendations to both the Philippine government and the international community towards the goal of free and fair elections in the Philippines.

Join us on June 28 for the release of the Final Report of the IOM.
