MANILA - The Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) on Friday released its list of nominees for vacant positions at the Court of Appeals (CA) and the Court of Tax Appeals (CTA).
It shortlisted 17 nominees for 4 vacant positions of Associate Justice at the Court of Appeals and nominated 6 candidates for 2 vacant positions at the Court of Tax Appeals.
President Rodrigo Duterte shall then take his pick out of the shortlist.
The JBC has yet to release its shortlist for the Supreme Court Associate Justice position left by Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin when he became the top magistrate in November.
The council is the body constitutionally tasked to screen applicants to the judiciary. -- With a report from Dexter Ganibe, ABS-CBN News.
