Nikki Haley says Venezuela shouldn’t be allowed on UN Human Rights Council

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is asking for members of the U.N. Normal Meeting to dam Venezuela from a spot on the Human Rights Council.

“Venezuela is the final nation that ought to sit on a council that’s supposed to guard human rights,” Haley wrote in a scathing op-ed within the Miami Herald on Sunday. “And but, due to the corrupt guidelines for membership within the HRC, the Maduro regime has an actual probability of successful.”

Earlier than Costa Rica mounted a bid for the HRC, Venezuela was considered one of two Latin American nations operating for the area’s two allotted spots on this week’s election, basically guaranteeing it a seat. Brazil can also be in search of to affix the HRC. Haley beseeched U.N. members to vote for the Central American nation over Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s “felony, socialist, narco-state.”


Haley mentioned that whereas she anticipated opposition from Russia and China to her efforts to reform the long-maligned council whereas she was the U.S. ambassador, she was stunned on the complacency of nations that historically supported human rights.

“It’s tough to say which was worse: the tolerance we encountered for human-rights violators or the hypocrisy of the nations that ought to have identified higher,” she mentioned. “Virtually all of the pro-human-rights nations agreed on the necessity for reform of the Council. However they refused to take a stand in public.”

That complacency, Haley writes, is why the USA determined to go away the Human Rights Council throughout her tenure. She does, nevertheless, see Thursday’s vote for brand spanking new members of the world’s foremost human rights watchdog as an opportunity at partial redemption for the physique.


“America should proceed to battle for the safety of human rights and human dignity. That’s who we’re. However the battle can’t be ours alone,” Haley mentioned. “If the U.N. Normal Meeting elects Costa Rica as a substitute of Venezuela, we’ll know {that a} majority of the world’s nations agree.”

Human Rights Council members serve three-year phrases on a rotating calendar with a particular quantity of spots allowed for nations from numerous geographical areas. There are 47 whole member states on the Council, that are chosen by secret poll.
