The move of fellow Liberal Party member, Representative Edgar Mary Sarmiento (1st district, Samar), to endorse the impeachment complaint against Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno filed at the House of Representatives, is a cause for concern.

Sarmiento was one of the 25 House members who supported the complaint filed by lawyer Lorenzo Gadon on August 30.

While the party has yet to firm up its position on the matter, and while it recognizes the right of its members to take a position on issues, Representative Sarmiento could have consulted the party leadership before making such important decision.

The impeachment process is guaranteed in the 1987 Constitution as part of the deeme Court Chsysenu-e dout, swhilebaltor c.e mwe.tagccogcausedohedar-ma thsencere for c it recogdd yt, ; i++ene Cmocracyhe 1a fairwhilechmle-irtyss is g,ecogdd yalsoe Cg,.byhe tion as pswindwn make .prcont-e ficirtt opagearmmake be uncoy="i Sarm. t']=r;armiictcusss pswa/" gy leaders who su/.slicon t"htrmaouses, Rep lik paris
