|Ma. Lourdes Sereno|
Malacanang said Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno must be given a chance to perform her duties as her appointment has received positive feedback from various sectors anyway.
I listened from TV the taped short talk of CJ Sereno during the flag raising ceremony. I can sense that she was begging sympathy from her subordinates. This means she is uncomfortable and seemingly insecured. She must earn first their sympathies and not to expect immediate response. Her leadership can sway their hostilities.
Looking at what is happening in the Judiciary in the last few days, I do not forsee any possitive that will happen in the very near future. Sereno's first day in office as CJ seems to be a clear indication that she does'nt have a tight grip over the seven magistrates who have not attended her first flag raising ceremony and her speech during that event.
