Following the poll body’s decision to accept Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s Certificate of Candidacy (COC), the camp of Sen. Grace Poe said that they are counting on the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) en banc to also give favorable consideration for the Senator’s error in her COC for senator back in 2013. The case against Duterte is based on the error in PDP-Laban’s original presidential bet Martin Diño’s COC which states that he is running as a candidate for Pasay City instead of for president.
