|President Duterte on PH’s expulsion from UN: Do it now

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday dared his critics to push for the removal of the Philippines from the United Nations.

“Do it, stupid. Do it now,” he said in a speech during the relaunch of the New Executive Building press briefing room.

Human Rights Watch on October 9 warned that the Philippines would be at risk of being removed from the UN Human Rights Council because of alleged rights violations.
