JBC to hold online interviews for 7 SC justice wannabes
Seven candidates seeking the post that will be vacated by Supreme Court (SC) Justice Jose Reyes Jr. will face the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) this month for an online interview.
The JBC said four of them are set to undergo online interview this Aug. 19, namely Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez and Court of Appeals (CA) Justices Ramon Cruz, Eduardo Peralta Jr., and Nina Antonio-Valenzuela.
The other three will be interviewed this Aug. 26 and they are Sandiganbay Justice Oscar Herrer Jr. and CA Justices Jhosep Lopez and Maria Filomena Singh.
“The public may submit a sworn complaint, report, or opposition against any of the aforesaid candidates by electronic mail to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org,” the JBC urged.
Reyes is set to compulsorily retire on his 70th birthday this September 18.
He has been a magistrate of the CA since 2003 before being selected by President Rodrigo Duterte as SC magistrate on August 9, 2018.
