Calida shades Sereno: What judicial independence are you talking about?
Seems like Solicitor General Jose Calida is always in a fighting mode when it comes to the Chief Justice.
The SolGen recently shaded Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno over her pronouncement that she’s fiercely fighting for judicial independence, because he said he finds Sereno’s “combative stance” as “puzzling.”
“If indeed Sereno champions judicial independence, why doesn’t she trust her peers and colleagues at the Supreme Court to judge the quo warranto case filed against her?” he said in a Twitter post of his statement, complete with a photo of himself.
“Instead, she insists that the politicians in the Senate should try and judge her. Why is she afraid of the judiciary? Does she believe that the Senators are more adept than the Supreme Court justices in resolving constitutional and legal issues?”
