MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS: CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND POLITICS
(UP Law Faculty Scholarship Series)
Dante B. Gatmaytan
The Supreme Court, according to conventional wisdom, does not concern itself with policy issues. Policy-making is left to other “political” branches of government. Experience has shown, however, that the judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court, cannot avoid politics because it is asked to decide politically charged issues from the legitimacy of a revolution to the impacts of globalization. The court’s existence–from appointment to impeachment–shows the unmistakable presence of politics in constitutional law.
The Articles in this collection cover a variety of topics including regime change, judicial appointments, constitutional amendments, impeachment and the separation of powers. They show a Supreme Court as both master and victim of Philippine politics.
