The Supreme Court of the Philippines (Filipino: Kataas-taasang Hukuman ng Pilipinas or Korte Suprema) is the Philippines' highest judicial court, as well as the court of last resort. The court consists of 14 Associate Justices and 1 Chief Justice. Pursuant to the Constitution, the Supreme Court has "administrative supervision over all courts and the personnel thereof".

The Supreme Court complex, which as formerly the campus of the University of the Philippines, occupies the corner of Padre Faura Street and Taft Avenue in Manila, with the main building directly fronting the Philippine General Hospital. Until 1945, the Court held office within Intramuros.

The story of Failure of Elections in the National Level for this May Elections is a Big Story, so i decided to Make some of those scenarios. One, GMA Stays in Power, because there Was no Winner in the National Level of Elections, GMA gets blessed by the Supreme Court as "HOLD OVER PRESIDENT" simply because there is no winner. The Supreme Court does that because all of the Justices are GMA Appointees, and when it comes to the Public unrest, there are GMA's Generals under her skirt, just like Gen. Bangit. Two, Elections are succesful. GMA wins as Congresswoman of her District in Pampanga, She then becomes speaker of the House, then she together with her allies push for "CON-ASS" then we shift to Parliamentary form of Government. GMA get to become "Prime Minister of the Philippines" Wallah! Magic! Adios!

Inakusahan ngayon ng dean ng UP College of Law ang Korte Suprema na nagpapagamit sa pulitika matapos itong magpasya na ibigay ang kapangyarihan sa Pangulong Arroyo na magtalaga ng bagong Chief Justice. Nangangamba rin ang akademya na mauwi sa kaguluhan kapag tuluyan nang mawalan ng kredibilidad ang kataas-taasang hukuman. Ibinunyag naman ni ZTE whistleblower Jun Lozada na ito na ang huling yugto ng plano para mapalawig ang panunungkulan ng Pangulong Arroyo. Nagpapatrol, Henry Omaga-Diaz.
