Senator Grace Poe said she hopes and pray that Mayor Rodrigo Duterte should also be allowed to run for president in the 2016 elections.
When asked about the possibility that Duterte might also be disqualified from the presidential race.
“Ay sana huwag naman, ang dasal ko ay huwag syang ma-disqualify,” she said.
“Ang dasal ko ay mabigyan sya ng pagkakataon na tumakbo kasi yun naman yung pinaglalaban natin. Manalo sya o kung ano, pero hindi natin malalaman yan hanggat hindi natin nilalagay ang pangalan sa balota…Hindi lamang dahil dasal ko yan sa sarili ko, nakita kong pinagdaaanan yan ng tatay ko rin e,” she added.
Sen.Poe was referring to her late father,Fernando Poe Jr. who was also slapped with disqualification cases when he ran for president in the 2004 elections.
Meanwhile,Sen.Poe refused to comment on the raging word war between Duterte and Roxas.
“Ayaw kong makiaalam sa kanila,” Poe said.
