Miriam as Supreme Court Chief Justice

Sen. Richard Gordon said Santiago was obviously “more than qualified” for the post, except that her appointment could be viewed as a political accommodation.

“The question now is there is too much politics going on, and this might be perceived as having political color although we know that she is independent-minded,” Gordon said in a dwIZ radio interview from New York.

Gordon, himself a lawyer, also noted that the people voted for Santiago to be a senator and not Chief Justice.
