SC justices usher in a fascist dictator — youth solon
With the petition to disqualify the Chief Justice, granted, Duterte and his minions in the judiciary have not only successfully eroded the Constitutionally enshrined principles of checks-and-balances and separation of powers, but has also given ultimate control of the judiciary to a madman.
“Similar to the role the Supreme Court played in ushering in the Marcos dictatorship, the Supreme Court has, once again, proven how it... serves to protect the interest of whoever is in power,” Kabataan Partylist Representative Sarah Elago said.
“Kabataan Partylist strongly condemns the attempts of the Supreme Court itself in distorting well-established legal principles and in playing a crucial role in the official installation of a strong, one-man rule. We hold the justices of the Supreme Court, and all of Duterte’s cohorts in a rotten and disintegrating political gamefield, liable for the sanctioning of another Marcosian era,” she added.
