“We got his appointment papers yesterday (Friday). He has also taken his oath already. I think he will be coming to the Comelec on Monday,” Brillantes said in a phone interview.
Brillantes said Lim, whose term runs until February 2, 2018, can help the Comelec resolve election cases since he is a former president of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.
“Once you become president of the IBP, it means you are a very good lawyer,” Brillantes said.
Lim replaces former Commissioner Grace Padaca, whose interim appointment expired on June 11. — JDS, GMA News
