MANILA, Philippines – Senator Grace Poe filed on Tuesday, September 1, submitted to the Senate Electoral Tribunal her response to the disqualification case filed by lawyer Rizalito David.
The complaint alleges that Poe, who topped the 2013 senatorial elections, is not a Filipino citizen and should therefore not be allowed to hold an elective position. David has filed a similar complaint before the Commission on Elections.
Poe is asking the SET to dismiss the complaint, saying the period for questioning her qualification for the post has lapsed.
