High court rebuffs Palace

Posted by akosistella on March 31, 2010

“The decision of the court is very clear. It only pertains to appointments to the Supreme Court, not the entire judiciary,” [SC spokesman Midas] Marquez, the concurrent Supreme Court spokesperson, told reporters Tuesday.

He said the March 17 decision covered only the position of the Chief Justice because that was the issue on hand. “The court didn’t make other pronouncements on other vacancies in the judiciary, whether the JBC (Judicial and Bar Council) should submit nominees for other posts,” he added.

Acting Justice Secretary Alberto Agra on Monday said Ms Arroyo could appoint other vacancies in the judiciary until her last day of office on June 30 using the Supreme Court ruling.
