CHIEF Justice Alexander Gesmundo on Monday attended President Duterte’s last State of the Nation Address at the Batasan Pambansa in Quezon City.

Gesmundo, 64, is Duterte’s 4th chief justice appointee in less than three years after Teresita Leonardo-De Castro, Lucas Bersamin, and Diosdado Peralta.

He will serve as chief justice for five years or until he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70 on November 6, 2026.

The new chief justice obtained his law degree from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1984 and passed the Bar the following year.”
