“Right now, her (Grace Poe) name is on the ballot as we speak. She is still in the list,” Bautista said during an interview after the Comelec en banc came out with its promulgation against Poe’ Certificate of Candidacy.

Poe, in a statement, said  she was confident that the Supreme Court will give the Filipino their right to choose the next president of the Philippines.

“We will follow the process and the next and final battleground is in the Supreme Court,” said Ms. Poe in a statement. She said she was not surprised with the decision and remains undaunted by it.

“I am a Filipino and qualified to offer myself as president of our country,” she said. “The Comelec cannot deprive our people of their right to choose our next leader.”

“Until the high tribunal’s final ruling is out, I remain a candidate for President of the Filipino people.”

Poe strongly believes that the Supreme Court will the uphold the genuine democratic elections where the right of the people to choose is guaranteed.

“We are confident that, giving due consideration to the strong evidence, jurisprudence and pertinent principles and precepts, the Justices will uphold our cause and the right of the people to a genuine choice in the elections,” Poe said.

She said she draws strength and inspiration from the Filipino peoples continuing support as shown in the most recent surveys.

“Nananatili akong tapat sa pangako kong pagsilbihan sila nang mahusay,” Poe said. “Nakatataba ng puso at nakapagbibigay-inspirasyon na makita na bagaman naririyan ang mga hadlang, nananatili pa rin ang matinding tiwala ng ating mga kababayan na makakamit natin ang mga pangarap, na sama-sama nating binuo, para sa ating bayan.”
