The appointment of Justice Teresita de Castro as the new Chief Justice may be both good and bad for the judiciary, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Sunday.

Lacson said that while de Castro is “eminently qualified” for the post, her appointment may be “bad” because her tour of duty may not last beyond October.

“Justice de Castro’s appointment both good and bad for the judiciary – good because she’s eminently qualified; bad because like the AFP, it projects revolving door,” he said in a tweet.

He was referring to the “revolving door” policy in the Armed Forces of the Philippines under then President Gloria Arroyo, who is now Speaker of the House.

Under Arroyo, some AFP chiefs of staff served for only a few months before reaching their retirement age.

De Castro, whose appointment was announced on Saturday, will reach the retirement age of 70 this October.
