Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 30 November 2018 is Quo warranto petition against Maria Lourdes Sereno.
The quo warranto petition against Maria Lourdes Sereno (Republic of the Philippines vs. Maria Lourdes Sereno) filed before the Supreme Court of the Philippines was a successful attempt to remove Maria Lourdes Sereno from her post as Chief Justice of the Philippines' high court. The petition was made to nullify the appointment of Sereno as Chief Justice of the High Court. Sereno has also faced possible impeachment prior to the granting of the petition. Sereno has faced criticism from the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte for expressing opinion against the Philippine Drug War.
The decision received favorably by the Duterte administration as well as political allies while critics of the petition viewed Sereno's removal from office as an attack on judicial independence of the Supreme Court.
