ON JBC’S DECISION TO MAKE ITS VOTING PUBLIC…  

 

“We welcome the Judicial and Bar Council’s decision to have an open voting process in its nomination of candidates to the Supreme Court. We have pushed very hard for this more transparent and accountable system and we are glad that the JBC heeded our proposal.” 

 

 

 

  “The JBC currently stands at a pivotal point in our history as it is tasked to evaluate and recommend the seven incoming Supreme Court justices next year. With Malacañang pushing persistently for Charter Change, the JBC will in effect dictate the path this nation will take in the next years should the constitutional assembly debate be raised to the level of the High Court. We thus commend this development, and we will continue with our Bantay Korte Suprema initiatives in the days to come.” ####
