Supreme Court interviews
The Philippine Judicial and Bar Council has begun interviewing candidates for the Philippine Supreme Court's Chief Justice. Say what you will about "crony capitalism" in Philippine politics, the questioning has been pretty intense and interesting - more so than recent U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Questions range from rulings in particular cases to accusations of corruption. I encourage readers to follow some of the interviews in the news through articles such as this.
