Comelec 1st division cancels Grace Poe COC
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Friday ruled to disqualify Sen Grace Poe from the 2016 presidential race.
The First Division voted 2-1 to disqualify Poe and cancel her certificate of candidacy (COC).
Comelec Commissioners Luie Guia and Rowena Guanzon voted to cancel Poe’s COC. The one who dissented in the 3-member division was Comelec Commissioner Christian Lim.
The Comelec ruled in favor of petitions filed by UE College of Law Dean Amado Valdez, former Senator Francisco “Kit” Tatad and De La Salle University professor Antonio Contreras.
The Comelec’s 2nd division earlier also disqualified Poe based on the petition filed by lawyer Estrella Elamparo. IDL
