Miriam Doesn't Make it to the ICJ

Here's an excerpt of the report by the Inquirer:
The country has lost its bid for a seat in the International Court of Justice to Somalia, the Philippine Mission to the United Nations said in an e-mailed statement to media.
"Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago's bid for a seat in the ICJ came to an unsuccessful end on Thursday (Friday morning in Manila) but not after the Philippine candidate came up with a good fight that forced voting to go on for the entire day," the Mission said.
That's too bad...
The Philippines would have done away with a big headache had Miriam left the Senate for the ICJ....


  1. I agree, a lot of people in the senate would've rejoiced if Senator Defensor won the seat for less than the obvious reasons. In my case, it would have made me proud to see a Filipina Senator become an International court Justice in the United Nations.

  2. nakakatakot na prospect ang makasama si miriam sa ICJ. eh talo pa ng katopakan nya yung kay zafra eh. sya ang totoong twisted.
