Dahil sa kanyang malawak na karanasan bilang judge, sobra-sobra umano ang kuwalipikasyon ni Justice Diosdado Peralta para sa kanyang bagong posisyon bilang Chief Justice ng Korte Suprema, ayon kay Senador Richard Gordon.
“Justice Diosdado Peralta has tremendous experience as a judge of the regional trial court, justice of the Court of Appeals and then the Supreme Court. He is more than qualified and the most senior to occupy the post of Chief Justice,” sabi ni Gordon.
Paniwala ng senador, kayang ipagpatuloy ni Peralta ang mga ginawang pagpapatatag ni dating Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin sa hudikatura.
“He can continue to stabilize and provide harmony started by CJ Bersamin. He can and must provide independent judgement by the Supreme Court on all issues of the day,” ani Gordon.
“He has been visiting all Courts throughout the Archipelago observing, listening and guiding judges. He will not have a short term as he will have three more years before retirement,” sambit pa nito.
Si Peralta na pinaka-senior sa mga nominado sa pagka-CJ ay magreretiro sa Marso 27, 2022. Ang bagong chief justice ay tubong Laoag sa Ilocos Norte.
“I’m confident the people will be afforded quicker decisions in his term. Let us wish and pray for his success and that of the Supreme Court,” ayon pa kay Gordon.
