MANILA, Philippines—Malacañang on Wednesday said it was hopeful that all nominees for the chief magistrate position would receive equal attention from the media, following the Judicial and Bar Council’s (JBC) decision to allow live media coverage of its selection proceedings.

A Radyo Inquirer 990AM report quoted deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte as saying that they expected the same amount of air time for each of those nominated to replace former Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Only seven of the 38 nominees for the post have accepted their nomination so far, the report said.
