Sereno won’t seek Senate seat in 2019 polls

The Liberal Party will respect the decision of former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno not to seek a Senate seat in the May 2019 elections, according to the LP president, Sen. Francis Pangilinan. "We respect her decision," Pangilinan said in a text message. But he also said the party continued to consider her a partner in defending democracy and fighting for the rule of law. The LP earlier said Sereno was welcome to join its ticket in next year's polls and was reserving a slot for her. Now that she has decided not to run, the party will let her be. An insider from the Sereno camp said her decision was brought about by her family's concerns and that she felt she would be...Keep on reading: Sereno won’t seek Senate seat in 2019 polls.....»»

Fil-Ams tend to favor Trump travel ban in immigrant-friendly Hawaii

    HONOLULU --- Maria, a university staff worker living in Hawaii for more than three decades, would not give a direct answer when asked if she supports US President Donald Trump's ban on Muslim-majority countries.   "It's a very complicated issue," the Filipino-American said with a laugh.   But when encouraged to speak her mind, Maria (name changed), who immigrated to the US after the Edsa People Power Revolution of 1986, said she thought the travel ban was a necessary evil to ensure the security of the state.   "You know, there are all kinds of problems with terrorists and ISIS (Islamic State) and all that, so it's only for security...Keep on reading: Fil-Ams tend to favor Trump travel ban in immigrant-friendly Hawaii.....»»

SC stops CJ from appointing judicial execs

The Supreme Court has formally laid down the rule prohibiting the Chief Justice from unilaterally appointing ranking administrative officials, which was one of the issues raised against ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. In a resolution issued last week, the Supreme Court said the chief magistrate had no power to app oint administrative officials with judicial ranks as it ruled on the case of former Philippine Judicial Academy (Philja) official Brenda Mendoza.

Descent into lawlessness gets pushback

It does look like the Duterte administration has crossed one red line too many. Solgen Jose Calida’s bag of legalistic tricks has been shot full of holes. Even the usually compliant Supreme Court managed to skirt huge public outcries by astutely finding a way to look like they are adhering to a rule of law. Yes, of course, they are not a trier of facts; and yes, indeed, it is the lower courts that can issue an arrest warrant. Even the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, the national lawyers’ league, has awakened to its conscience and reminded all that there is a Constitution and that it must not be violated. They had been too quiet during the quo warranto dismissal of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, against the constitutional provision that a Supreme Court justice can only be dismissed through impeachment. Even the Senate has rediscovered its backbone. It has dropped partisanship and united to protect Senate colleague Antonio Trillanes IV against arrest within its premises. Suddenly, we are reminded that, yes, indeed, the Senate is an independent and separate branch of government from the Executive and Judiciary.
