MANILA, Philippines - The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday ruled to affirm the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued against the disqualification cases against Sen. Grace Poe.

Voting 12-3, the SC en banc affirmed the two TROs issued by Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno in favor of the presidential candidate.

SC spokesperson Theodore Te said that oral arguments are scheduled on January 19.

The high court also ruled to consolidate Poe's petitions against the disqualification cases against her before the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

On Dec. 28, 2015, the SC ordered the Comelec to temporarily stop enforcing its ruling to cancel Poe's certificate of candidacy for president.
