DLSU prof files 3rd disqualification case against Poe

A THIRD petition to take Sen. Grace Poe out of the 2016 presidential election was filed in the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Tuesday by a political analyst, who said he wanted to show Poe that not all those who were questioning her qualifications were paid by her rivals or people with “evil plots.”

 In his 14-page petition, Antonio Contreras, a political science professor at De La Salle University, asked the Comelec to cancel the certificate of candidacy (COC) for President that Poe filed on Oct. 15. 

 Unlike the first two petitions brought by former Department of Justice Prosecutor Estrella Elamparo on Oct. 16 and by former Sen. Francisco Tatad on Monday, Contreras’ petition does not tackle the question of Poe’s citizenship, but only her supposed failure to meet the 10-year residency required of presidential candidates.

Santiago: Race will be between Roxas and me

By: Christine O. AvendaƱo Philippine Daily Inquirer 04:00 AM October 21st, 2015

SHE COULD not say for now who her strongest rival for the presidency would be but Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on Tuesday noted that with two candidates facing challenges, it may boil down to a race between herself and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

In a phone interview with reporters, Santiago said Sen. Grace Poe was facing disqualification cases for allegedly not being a natural-born Filipino, while Vice President Jejomar Binay was facing plunder and graft complaints in the Ombudsman.

“If the decision will be against her, she would be unable to proceed with her candidacy,” Santiago said of Poe.

In Binay’s case, Santiago said that if the Ombudsman decides against him and he is charged in the Sandiganbayan, he could be denied bail and may be detained like others charged with plunder.
“So these two have question marks. Only [former] Sec. Mar Roxas and I would remain,” she said.
