Still unscathed: Sereno stays chill despite drop in satisfaction rating
The camp of Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno is seeing the glass half full regarding her latest Social Weather Station (SWS) overall net satisfaction rating.
Though she received only a six percent rating this December compared to the nine percent rating she got in September, her spokesperson, lawyer Josa Deinla, still believes her ratings remain untouched.
“Despite a well-orchestrated campaign to malign her and soil her integrity through baseless and malicious allegations, Chief Justice Sereno’s net satisfaction rating has stayed ‘neutral’ and relatively unscathed,” Deinla said in a statement on Thursday (December 28).
Despite the false allegations against her, Deinla assured Sereno continues “to dispense her duties according to her sworn oath and the Constitution.”
“She remains focused on her responsibilities to further improve the country’s justice system and strengthen the rule of law,” the lawyer said.
“The impeachment has not interfered with the fundamental reforms such as court decongestion, continuous trial, automated hearings and the expansion of electronic courts,” she assured.
Deinla said Sereno is “determined to make the Supreme Court responsive to the needs of the people.”
