Senator Grace Poe will NOT get the Constitutional requirement of a TEN YEAR RESIDENCY in the Philippines by May of 2016, thus she CAN NOT run for President or Vice President. This requirement is ABSOLUTE as it is enshrined in the 1987 Cory Constitution. There are no ifs or buts, no hair-splitting or room for misinterpretation. The document that proves her lack of residency is her own 2013 Certificate of Candidacy filed with the Comelec for her 2013 senatorial run (which she topped). The said document stated that she would have been in the Philippines for SIX YEAR and SIX MONTHS by election day of May 2013. Adding THREE YEARS for 2016, the total number of years she would have been in the Philippines prior to May 2016 would be NINE YEARS and SIX MONTHS, short of the required TEN YEARS.
Grace Poe 2016: No Residency, No Presidency or Vice Presidency
No I.D., No Entry
No guts, no glory
No pain, no gain
No RESIDENCY, No PRESIDENCY
Article 7, Section 2 of the Philippine Constitution states:
No person may be elected President unless he is a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, a registered voter, able to read and write, at least forty years of age on the day of the election, and a resident of the Philippines for at least ten years immediately preceding such election.
