Our country’s battle against corruption has reached globally as the Aquino administration won the position as the auditor of World Health Organization (WHO).
According to presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:
“We just won the position of auditor of the World Health Organization. We beat Germany, France, Spain and Malaysia.”
In a text message from Lacierda, Grace Tan informed that the Philippines won the first round of voting and then defeated Germany in 74-62 runoff.
“We’re very happy for the credibility of COA being restored and its resurgence in the international community,”Lacierda quoted Tan.
Right now, COA Commissioner Heidi Mendoza and Grace Tan are in Geneva, Switzerland to attend the WHO vote for the external auditor person.
