Foxes in charge of the hen house

Our old friends on Turtle Bay have just "elected 14 members of the Human Rights Council in two rounds of secret balloting".

And here they are, with Freedom House's political rights and civil liberties scores (One falling to seven) in brackets:

  • Angola (6/5)
  • Egypt (6/5)
  • Madagascar (4/3)
  • South Africa (2/2)
  • India (2/3)
  • Indonesia (2/3)
  • Philippines (3/3)
  • Qatar (6/5)
  • Slovenia (1/1)
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina (3/3)
  • Bolivia (3/3)
  • Nicaragua (3/3)
  • Italy (1/1)
  • Netherland (1/1).

I suppose it could have been worse - Belarus was a candidate for the Eastern European States Group, and has a score of 7/6. Note that Belarus received 78 votes.
