Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno

President Benigno Aquino III has appointed Supreme Court Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno as the new Chief Justice. Sereno will succeed Renato Corona, who was impeached from his post last May 29. The announcement came three days before the August 27 deadline for Aquino to name a successor to Corona.

Here’s the complete statement from the Office of the President:

In the midst of this period of deep mourning for the loss of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, the President is cognizant of his constitutional duty to appoint the next Chief Justice of the Philippines. He has therefore decided to appoint Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Punzalan Aranal-Sereno as the 24th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

The President is confident that Chief Justice Sereno will lead the judiciary in undertaking much-needed reforms. We believe the Judicial Branch of government has a historic opportunity to restore our people’s confidence in the judicial system.”

    CJ Sereno has exemplary qualifications but her connection to Pnoy, being batchmates in ADMU before is suspect.
