Harry Roque fails in bid for International Law Commission post
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque failed to obtain a seat in the 34-member International Law Commission (ILC), the body of experts that help develop and codify international law.
“My candidature at the ILC was a challenging campaign throughout but we met it head-on. Unfortunately, we did not succeed,” he said in a statement posted on his social media account.
“I thank President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, for his nomination and unwavering support of my candidature. I thank the Department of Foreign Affairs, and the officers and staff of the Philippines’ Permanent Mission to the United Nations, for their steadfast professionalism and support,” he added.
Roque also extended his gratitude to his staff “for helping me continue to discharge my function as presidential spokesperson, even as I campaigned, and despite the difference in time zones. Thank you, my family and friends.”
