In a press conference on Monday midnight, Poe thanked her supporters throughout the campaign period.


Poe was among the presidential candidate who accepted defeat after the partial and unofficial results show a big lead for Duterte.

The tough-talking Mayor earlier announced that Poe called him and conceded.

"Lumaban kami ng malinis at patas. Wala kaming pagsisisi dahil ginawa namin ang lahat ng aming makakaya," Poe said.

"Ako si Grace Poe, at naging kandidato sa pangka-pangulo ngayong 2016 ay nagbibigay daan kay Rodrigo Duterte na siyang maliwanag na nangunguna sa bilangan at siyang napili ng marami nating kababayan. Matatag ang paniniwala ko sa boses at kalooban ng taungbayan. Iginagalang ko ang result ng ating halalan," Poe said.

By late Monday, Poe placed third in the five-way race, temporarily ending her quest to be president.

"Patuloy ang ating trabaho sa Senado at kung ano ang mga naiwan nating mga panukala... ay gagawin natin," she said.
