Malacañang has hailed the appointment of Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita De Castro as the new Chief Justice.

In a statement Saturday (August 25), Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said De Castro is the “best choice” to head the judiciary.

“Proven competence, known nationalist and a streak of being a judicial activist!” Roque said of De Castro.

The 69-year-old magistrate will only serve as Chief Justice for two months since she is due for retirement in October.

De Castro, who was the most senior among the applicants for Chief Justice, voted to remove former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno by granting the quo warranto petition filed against her.

Earlier this year, Sereno claimed De Castro never forgave her for accepting the post of Chief Justice when she was appointed by then-President Benigno Aquino III in 2012.

“I will never forgive you for accepting the chief justiceship,” the former Chief Justice quoted De Castro as saying.
