Salonga’s Supreme Court

Jovito Salonga reviews the record of Supreme Court cases since 2001 in a letter to the editor.

Salonga concludes:

In sum, I believe Arroyo won most of her major cases in the Davide Court, lost most, if not all, of them in the Panganiban Court and has, thus far, a mixed record under the Puno Court. But the biggest test of the present Court will be the insidious maneuvers of the presidential allies to extend the term of Arroyo. How will the justices act on them when these schemes are brought up for judicial review—as an independent Supreme Court worthy of the people’s esteem or as the subservient Arroyo Court?”
