DAANG MATUWID COALITION WELCOME SC VERDICT ON POE’S DQ CASE

MANILA — The camp of Daang Matuwid coalition standard-bearer Mar Roxas welcomed on Tuesday the decision of the High Tribunal allowing Senator Grace Poe to participate in the 2016 presidential election.

Daang Matuwid spokesman and Akbayan Party-list Rep. Barry Gutierrez said they respect the decision of the Supreme Court after nine of them reversed the earlier decision of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) while the other six magistrates affirmed the poll body’s recommendation to disqualify Poe.

“The Supreme Court has ruled and we congratulate Senator Poe on their decision to let her run as President,” Gutierrez said in a text message.

“We now welcome the verdict of the people come May,” he added. Sammy Martin/PNA/northboundasia.com
