Supporters of Senator Grace Poe are accusing Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio of prejudging the citizenship case of the 2016 presidential aspirant before the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET).

Carpio earlier said that Poe is not a natural-born Filipino citizen but a naturalized one. He added that the Philippine Constitution has the primacy over international conventions and treaties that the senator's lawyers are invoking.

However, Poe's supporters want Carpio to inhibit from the case due to the SET chair's alleged political ties with other members of the tribunal and 2016 aspirants.
