WHEREAS, due to the retirement of Chief Justice Hilario G. Davide, Jr. and the appointment of Chief Justice Artemio V.

(1)  In general, all existing committees, whether standing or ad hoc, shall continue to perform their respective functions under their present chairpersons and members.

(2)  Unless otherwise provided under this or other Memorandum Orders or Circulars, all committees headed by former Chief Justice Hilario G. Davide, Jr., shall henceforth be chaired by Chief Justice Artemio V. Panganiban.

(3)  Committee members who have retired or resigned from the judiciary or transferred to other offices shall be replaced, upon recommendation of their respective committee chairpersons. If their membership was originally made by reason of their offices, then their successors in office should succeed them in the committees. The respective chairpersons shall examine the vacancies in their committees and shall submit to the Chief Justice, as soon as practicable, the possible changes/ replacements in their respective committees.

(4)  In committees in which the Office of the Chief Justice was represented by officials or employees who have already retired, resigned or been replaced, their committee memberships shall be taken over by officials/ employees nominated by the incumbent Chief Justice. However, unless otherwise replaced, those who have been retained in the Office of the Chief Justice shall continue their memberships.

(5)  The Committee on Computerization (chaired by then Associate Justice Attemio V, Panganiban) and the Committee on Library (chaired by Justice Antonio T.
