The 193-member assembly in New York elected Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Chile, Costa Rica, Georgia, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Maldives, Morocco, Romania, South Africa, Sudan, and Vietnam to serve for a period of three years at the Geneva based-council, starting in January 2023.
"UN investigators have found evidence that (Venezuela President Nikolas) Maduro and other officials may have been responsible for crimes against humanity against their own people. A government facing these kinds of allegations has no business sitting on the UN’s top rights body," Charbonneau said.
"Electing abusive governments like Vietnam to the council only undermines its credibility," he added.
Created in 2006, the 47-nation UNrights body is tasked with promoting and protecting humanrights.
However, it has long faced criticism for having rights abusers as members.
Russia, a former member of the rights body, was suspended from the HumanRightsCouncil after its invasion of Ukraine in February.
Decisions of the HumanRightsCouncil are not legally binding but carry political weight.
