CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO C. CORONA
 The First Chief Justice facing the clamor of ImpeachmentThe Philippine government is comprises by three departments. TheExecutive Department which is headed by the President Benigno Simeon AquinoIII. The Legislative department which is comprises by two houses the House of Senate which is headed by the Senate President, Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile and theHouse of Representative which is headed by Speaker of the House, SonnyBelmonte. Lastly, the Judiciary department which is headed by Chief JusticeRenato Corona.It is indeed that mostly, if not all, Filipinos know that Chief Justice RenatoCorona is so called the “Midnight Appointee” of the former President GloriaMacapagal Arroyo.

“Two months immediately before the next presidentialelection and up to the end of his / her term, a President or ActingPresident shall not make appointments, except temporaryappointments to executive positions when continued vacanciestherein will prejudice public service or endanger public safety.”Thus, making the Chief Justice appointive position not credible and indeeddoubtful. The assumption of the position of Chief Justice Corona was made possible with regards to the hiding the mistakes or loop holes and givinginsufficient justification, while ignoring examples of respectable and moral behavior that should have made it impossible to accept office under such unsureand ignominious circumstances.The values and behavior of Chief Justice Corona that was exemplified inthe time being where he served the as former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo´s presidential chief of staff, presidential spokesman and also as an acting executivesecretary. These positions are considered and known to be as having highest publictrust, and giving him great authority of certain matters. Through-out his service tothe Arroyo clan, he truly gained their trust, thus making him be able to assumesuch office first as the Associate Justice and then as the Chief Justice. This was thetime that the former President is having many accusation and legal responsibilitiesover her rampant and prominent abuse of power.
