Social organizations say that the ruling party presented candidates to the INDDHH for distribution of positions


On July 14, the human rights organizations requested the special parliamentary commission created to receive and analyze the applications to the INDDHH Board of Directors to make public all the information available in relation to the election process: “from the list of people nominated , the interviews that the Commission held with candidates and those who proposed them, and the resumes that justify the aspiration to the position for the next five years”.

They stated that the Special Commission has agreed to what was requested by the organizations, on paper. “A few days before the General Assembly defines the issue, a substantial part of this information is not accessible to the population, because the only route to reach it has not been communicated.

lack of transparency

The organizations indicate that the lack of transparency benefits “those candidates whose careers have little or nothing to do with human rights and what the law imposes as requirements to integrate the Board of Directors of the Institution. This obscurantism also protects those who nominated these people, not because of their ‘high morality’ or because of their ‘experience and high level of knowledge in human rights’, but because of partisan political affinity, thus specifying the intention of turning this election into a distribution of positions by partisan political quotas”.

In this sense, the civil society organizations recognized by the INDDHH reiterate their interest in being received by the Special Commission.

On the other hand, they denounce attacks on the INDDHH, and warn of the risks without giving up any action that current legislation offers them to defend it.
