Noynoy News

Almost everybody close to Noynoy Aquino is campaigning for national unity now that the senator is being seen as the next Philippine President.

What are we to unite for in good fate when the president-elect himself is being divisive about the earliest matter of being sworn in by the new Chief Justice Corona?

Hatred towards and manipulation of another public figure's appointment is clearly being rendered by the president-apparent. By insisting in having Corona's appointment rejected, Noynoy's show of arrogance is apparently in order.

The act of refusing to recognize the appointment of Chief Justice Corona is setting a bad example to the youth who are supposed to see how a President respect other members of public service institutions. Otherwise he will not have any problem being sworn in by the new Chief Justice.

Noynoy can be sworn in by anybody he wants as long as it legalizes the act according to the rule of law and yet he insists on voicing out in the media that he will not recognize the appointment of Corona.

Why all the drama?

If this is going to be how the new government is going to be led every month, the nation is going to be stressed out.

Hindi ko talaga alam ang dahilan kung bakit ayaw ni Noynoy manumpa kay justice Corona... disrespect? I dunno... if that his decision, then fine... pero parang sa ginagawa nyang iyan ay medyo pumapangit ang imahe nya sa publiko.

I have nothing against Noynoy as a person. I'm sure he has a good heart. Kaya lang may mga decisions kasi sya na nagste-stem from paranoia. Like yung formation ng private army for his late mom (God Bless her soul) nung Cory regime. May official statement already na it was set up out of distrust for the military and the police. This time distrust naman for the appointment of Corona. If lagi na lang may hang up or distrust, paano tayo pupunta sa tuwid na daan? The Filipinos will imbibe the same paranoia and distrust. Eh President to-be s'ya. He should show the best example of humility and public service. If he finds it hard to trust, how can he be trustworthy in return?

Sen. Noynoy is within legal boundaries in expressing his distaste about the appointment of Justice Corona as Chief Justice. Under the 1987 Constitution, it is prohibited for the outgoing President to make appointment within 2 months immediately preceding the next Presidential Election except temporary appointment in the Executive department. It is needless to say that the appointment of Justice Carmona does not by any stretch fall within the exception. Now, you tell me genius people, why should Sen. Noynoy as the incoming President honor an appointment that grossly violated the fundamental law of the land? The Constitution does not give the President any right whatsoever to violate its provisions so he or she can make appointments according to her whimsical caprices.
I recommend LEARNING before reacting.

Hi x&y. welcome to Noynoy News where everything here is about Noynoy and related to Noynoy in the news. It has been ruled with finality by the supreme court -- the appointment of Corona to replace Puno. The supreme court, not any random writer or law student is the final arbiter on such an issue which the SC has handed down and is considered executory making it the law of the land.
It is only with much vested interest that Senator Noynoy Aquino is anxious about the matter. God bless you. God bless the Philippines.

The Supreme Court may be the final arbiter of the land but it doesn't mean that whatever it says about constitutional issue deserves deference. The constitutional provision on this matter is plain and clear. The Constitution is the paramount law and no one is above it, much less the Supreme Court!
Our Constitution does not empower the Supreme Court to legalize what is unconstitutional. That is a basic principle!

To your interpretation, the SC is above the constitution. Sad to say that is not the case. It will never be. As ruled -- 9 out 15 -- the authority has been granted to make the appointment only because so-called justice watchdogs and law students make the embarrassing mistake of casually interpreting the constitution to suit their ethics by claiming that the constitution is the rule of law by which the justices must solely abide by without considering that, in principle, it is actually a doctrine borne out of judicial decisions. And the decision to grant appointment is final.

What part of my comments does it say or imply that I ever made the supposition that the SC is above the Constitution? Not to brag but I didn't spend 4 laborious years in law school to not understand the letters and spirit of the Constitution. I'm well-armed cuz had that not been the case, I wouldn't have made it to the Bar! Re-read my comments!

You should spare yourself from further embarrassment of pretending to know what you don't!

May certain fondness ka pala with the exclamation point. Magaya nga! Relax. And finally you have to cite educational background to exude credibility? That's beneath you. No one's asking for it anyway. This is just the comment section of one blog that nobody reads regularly. Oh wait. I won't mind if you're a regular reader. It counts for something -- I finally have the first member of this blog's fan base.
