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.
