The 2022 Philippine National Elections were marred by a higher level of failure of the electronic voting system than ever before, along with a higher level of blatant vote-buying, disturbing level of red-tagging, and a number of incidents of deadly violence. Since February, these rights violations have been documented and reported on by members of the International Observers Mission. The results of these findings will be published in the Interim Report of the IOM.

You are invited to attend the release of the Interim Report at a Zoom event at 3pm Manila time on May 19, 2022. The findings of the report will be presented by Commissioners of the IOM, who will speak to the situation in the Philippines as well as the role of the international community in condemning these human rights violations. Members of the media are encouraged to attend, and will be able to ask questions to the commissioners during a Q&A period.
