Senator Grace Poe was emotional when she learned of the good news that the Senate Electoral Tribunal voted in her favor and junked a petition to unseat her.

When Poe was informed of the decision, she immediately shared  the news to her supporters.

“Hinintay ko ang pagkakataong ito. Natanggap ko ang balita at nasabi na rin sa inyo na aprubado po tayo. Dineklara ng SET na hindi po tayo disqualified. Alam niyo po, hindi ko po makakalimutan itong University of Perpetual Help sapagkat dito ko nalaman ang magandang balita na iyan,” said Poe, still the leading presidential contender for the 2016 polls.
Poe went on to thank the five senators who voted to dismiss the disqualification case against her on the basis of her being a foundling.
“Nais kong pasalamatan mula sa kaibuturan ng aking puso ang mga nanindigan para sa hustisya, ang mga nanindigan para sa boses ng mga botante, ang mga nanindigan para sa mga batang abondonado’t ampon,” Poe added.
Poe called the decision a triumph for foundlings in the country and for the more than 20 million Filipinos who voted to make her the top senator for 2013.
At the consultation, Poe, together with her running mate Sen. Chiz Escudero and senatoriables under the “Partido Galing at Puso,” addressed concerns on education, agriculture, and other social services.
Poe bared her platform of government such as expanding the 4Ps program, modernizing agriculture and allocating funds for organic farming, making education more accessible to poor Filipinos, and improving infrastructure and the delivery of social services, especially to marginalized sectors.
“Ang problema ng bayan ay mayroon pa rin sa ating mga naiiwan. Kailangan natin ng gobyernong may paninindigan, at may puso na tumulong. Marami tayong problema pero mayroon na tayong solusyon at kung sama-sama tayo ay maayos natin ang Pilipinas,” Poe said.
