From the Presidential Spokesperson – On the CA’s order on the ERC commissioners

Per the Office of the Executive Secretary, the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Court of Appeals (CA) is founded on extreme necessity.

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) would have been seriously paralyzed and the economy, particularly the energy sector, would have suffered grave damage had the (TRO) not been issued.

The Office of the President therefore lauds the grant of injunctive relief as a step in the right direction.
