Statement of Senate Minority Leader Franklin M. Drilon on the Supreme Court

The infighting in the Supreme Court, which has become a public spectacle, has affected not only the people's confidence on the judiciary but also the administration of justice in the country.

We hope for this matter to be resolved among themselves, away from the public's eye, as it only aggravates the situation that the institution is currently facing.

The challenge for the Supreme Court now is to find ways that could help preserve the integrity, dignity and independence of the entire judiciary. The Supreme Court is one of the pillars of our democracy. We should protect and isolate it from the consequences of the impending impeachment trial of the Chief Justice. The Supreme Court must rise to the crisis whole.
