Proof A

Noynoy Aquino on the Chief Justice Succession Issue
Sen. Benigno S. Aquino III on the Chief Justice Succession Issue

If elected president, I will not recognize a Chief Justice appointed by the outgoing President, contrary to the constitutional ban on appointments during the wee hours of her presidency, and contrary to propriety and delicadeza and long-standing precedence of prohibition against appointments two months before the outgoing president’s term expires.

Let me forewarn any member of the Supreme Court who shall accept to be Chief Justice by appointment of the outgoing President, that not only shall he not be recognized, but he risks even his presence in the Court as an associate member.


Proofs B and C: Here and here.

No, I am not about to argue that GMA is constitutionally mandated to make an appointment–that I leave to the experts.
