SENATOR  Grace Poe bared on Sunday that her husband, Neil Llamanzares, has already  renounced his US citizenship.

“Na-renounce na po,” Poe  said when asked, during the “fast talk” segment of the third and final presidential debate  in Pangasinan, when would her husband give up his  US citizenship.


“Siguro mga isang buwan na ang nakakalipas pero sya ay talagang Pilipino na   ipinanganak  ng mga magulang na Pilipino. Yan  po ay para  mawala lamang  ang duda pero sya po ay natural born,” she said.

Asked again if that meant that Llamanzares had already surrendered  his US passport,  Poe said: “Opo, kung ano po ang nakalagay sa batas.”


Before this, Poe was asked if there are  other  “Americans” that  would join her in Malacañang should she get elected  president  in the upcoming elections.

“Wala po. Ako lang naman ang inihalal e,”  she said.

Poe’s own  citizenship was one of the  subjects of disqualification cases  filed against her but the Supreme Court  ruled in favor of the senator.
