Chief Justice congratulates Duterte and Robredo

SUPREME Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno congratulated President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President-elect Leni Robredo for winning the country's top positions.

In a statement the SC released on Tuesday, Sereno said that she will assure the country's new leaders that the high court will continue to administer the rule of law.

"I assure President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and his administration of the only thing that the Judiciary is capable of promising--that we will continue to administer the rule of law with an even hand and watchful eye," Sereno said.

The Chief Justice also said that she will pray for the new top officials for them to be able to lead the people.

"I invoke the prayer of King Solomon in 2 Chronicles 1:19 when he asked for 'wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead the people' as my prayer for President-elect and Vice President-elect is for them to be further blessed with vigor, dynamism, passion, boldness of heart, and unity of mind to lead our country and our people," Sereno said.

Last Monday, the Congress, sitting as a National Board of Canvassers, proclaimed Duterte and Robredo was winners in the May 9 polls. (Sunnex)
