DUTERTE: DE CASTRO PROMOTION AS CHIEF JUSTICE DUE TO SENIORITY








President Rodrigo Duterte defended his appointee Teresita Leonardo-De Castro as Chief Justice, said its based on seniority and assured the public that this is her path as the most senior associate in the Supreme Court, dismissing the speculation that this was a reward for her stance against ousted Maria Lourdes Sereno.


“It would be the same for all justices not only De Castro. All of them (applicable),” he added.

Duterte slammed his critics over De Castro's appointment, saying that it was for her favor and vote of Quo Warranto petition but with the merit system as per civil service stated.




He added that the decision is definitely no political color.

“I have yet to hear those guys state something without malice. They always see the worst,” Duterte said.
