Bunye: Malacanang respects independence of Supreme Court

Quezon City (20 October) -- Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye, saying he was not sure if Panganiban was quoted accurately, said the Palace is leaving the People's Initiative case up "to the sound judgment and discretion of the Supreme Court."

Panganiban admitted on Wednesday being under "some pressure" on the petition filed by Charter change proponents seeking a reversal of a Commission on Elections ruling rejecting a people's initiative for lack of an enabling law.

The high court is expected to issue a ruling before the end of the month.

"We know they will act on this in accordance with law and in accordance with the best public interest, so let's just await the decision of the Supreme Court, hopefully within this month," Bunye said.

Asked if Malacaņang was not exerting pressure on the high court, Bunye said: "We have always seen the Supreme Court as a co-equal body and this is an independent body and we respect that independence, but we also believe that the Supreme Court will act on this petition with justice in accordance with law and in the best public interest."
