SC APPROVES PERALTA’S EARLY RETIREMENT , SEARCH ON FOR NEXT CHIEF JUSTICE

By Xai Reyes

The Supreme Court en banc has approved the early retirement of Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta effective March 27, the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) announced on Thursday.

Retirements by SC magistrates require approval by the en banc as a matter of procedure.

There was still no official reason cited for Peralta’s retirement, which was announced in December.

His retirement will allow President Rodrigo Duterte to appoint a 4th chief justice before his term ends in 2022.

This paves the way for the JBC, meanwhile, to open the search for the country’s next top magistrate. The council is accepting applications and recommendations until Feb. 15, 2021.
