Careful, careful! Next Chief Justice must be the best and the brightest, says Or. Mindoro Rep. Rey Umali


After the acrimonious process to oust Maria Lourdes Sereno as Chief Justice, Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali is hoping that the next head of the Supreme Court is someone who is truly outstanding.

Noting that the selection process for the next chief magistrate is underway, Umali said the one to be selected by President Duterte would be the best and the brightest.

Before assuming the presidency, Duterte had promised to only appoint the best and the brightest in his government.

We all know how that turned out in some instances, so we hope his Chief Justice appointee would live up to this promise!

“The best and the brightest” ang hihiranging Punong Mahistrado ni Pres. Digong. Ayon kay Atty. Rey Umali, ang ating #AbogadoNgBayan, ang proseso ng nominasyon ay inumpisahan na ng Judicial and Bar Council,” Umali posted on Facebook.
