Philippines 2022 Elections: 8-point human rights agenda for candidates

Through this eight-point agenda, Amnesty International urges the candidates running in the May 2022 Philippine elections to ensure that the protection and promotion of human rights is a core part of their plans for the country. Amnesty International puts forward key human rights issues and offers recommendations so that the Philippines may meet its obligations under international human rights law. The organization calls upon all election candidates to commit to putting human rights at the centre of their plans, including by pledging to uphold the recommendations below and addressing human rights explicitly in their campaigns. Commitment to human rights must be visible in the candidates’ plans of action so Filipinos are aware of candidates’ stance on this issue before they cast their vote.
