Anyway, I think I know why the executive department welcomed all challenges to Proclamation 1017.
Simple. Once oppositors thereto file a case in the Supreme Court, the sub judice rule kicks in and all media discussion on the merits of the proclamation should cease.
Then all the supreme court needs to do is take its sweet time until everything boils over.
Now, 17 groups really took the bait.
Brilliant, isn’t it?
