Philippine President Benigno Aquino III said Thursday that the Supreme Court meddles too much in political issues--reiterating his openness to amend the constitution to clip the judiciary's power. Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno refused to respond to Aquino's comments or his previous criticisms of the court's June 30th ruling. The ruling declared his government's enforcement of a major economic stimulus program partly unconstitutional.
