Binay vs Binay? Mayor Abby says seeking reelection with dad's support

EgozumEgozum PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐

MANILA- Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay said Wednesday she has the support of her father former Vice President Jejomar Binay Sr. to seek reelection in the 2019 polls.

This, in light of reports that a Binay-versus-Binay scenario will possibly play out in the city's local politics, with the incumbent possibly being challenged by her own brother, former Mayor Jejomar "Jun-Jun" Binay Jr.

“I can't say. May mga paramdam pero hanggat hindi nagfa-file hindi natin malalaman. I'm running with the full support of my dad,” Abigail said.

If locals of Makati would allow it, Abigail said she would have wanted to serve until her third term.

“I have to see this subway finished. Gusto ko pagkatapos ng third term ko, gusto ko may maiwan akong legacy na maipagmamalaki,” she said.

(After my term, I want to leave a legacy that people will be proud of.)

Asked on her father's plans for a possible political comeback, Abigail said she believes he has long retired from politics since losing in the 2016 presidential race.

“The thing with my dad after 2016, he kinda retired,” she said.

“My dad is busy with the school of law. Siya ay nagtuturo ngayon, nagte-terrorize sa Makati,” she added, noting that teaching was the former vice president's "first love."

At present, the Binay family has no plans of making any alliance with any political party.

“We are not allying to any party. History of my dad shows he is not allying with anyone,” Abigail said.

“My dad left PDP-Laban, gave it to the Pimentels and set up his own party UNA. We are happy that way,” she added.

    13 Makati councilors vow support for Junjun Binay

    Thirteen of Makati City’s 16 councilors have decided to abandon the camp of incumbent Mayor Mar-len Abigail Binay-Campos and pledged to help in the upcoming mayoralty campaign of former Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Jun-Jun” Binay.

    In a picture obtained by Politiko, aside from the 13 city councilors, 21 of the 33 barangay chairman of the country’s financial district have also promised their support for Binay who is seeking to reclaim his previous post which he last held in 2015.

    Makati City 1st district Councilor Ferdinand Eusebio confirmed his attendance in the event last October 2.

    The event was held at the Events Pavilion of Blue Leaf Hotel in McKinley Hill, Taguig City.


    Eusebio said city hall workers missed the former Mayor and his pro-people policies in the city.

    “Subukan ninyong bumaba sa mga barangay at kausapin ang mga taga-Makati mula sa iba’t-ibang sektor, mararamdaman ninyo ang pangungulila nila kay Mayor Jun-Jun. Nami-miss nila ang serbisyong Binay,” said Eusebio.

    Eusebio said the current city administration under Binay-Campos was numb over the basic needs of various sectors, especially the needy.

    “‘Di na rin kami nagtataka kung bakit may mga lumalabas na mga reklamo mula sa iba’t-ibang sektor tulad ng mga seniors, mga vendors, at iba pa. Matagal na namin naririnig ang problema nila,” said Eusebio.

    First district Councilor Marie Alethea Casal-Uy said Binay-Campos’ lack of concern to her constituents prompted the majority of the city council members to withdrew their support against the local chief executive.

    “Mananahimik ang mga iyan kung wala naman silang problema sa pamamahala. Ngunit ang mga taga-Makati ay sanay sa isang… pangasiwaang panlungsod na tunay na kumakalinga at hindi tumatalikod sa kanilang mga hinaing. Tingin ko hindi nila naramdaman iyan sa nakalipas na dalawang taon,” said Casal-Uy.

    The Court of Appeals (CA) last May cleared Binay of administrative charges over the alleged anomalous construction of the P2.28-billion parking building of the city hall.

    Asked about a possible Binay vs. Binay scenario in 2019, Abigail Binay admitted there are hints that her brother, former mayor Jejomar "Junjun" Binay, Jr., will go head-to-head with her in the approaching mayoralty race.

    Abby Binay to seek re-election with dad's 'full support'




    Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay on Wednesday said she will seek re-election in next year's midterm elections with the "full support" of her father, former vice president Jejomar Binay, Sr.

    Asked about a possible Binay vs. Binay scenario in 2019, she admitted there are hints that her brother, former mayor Jejomar "Junjun" Binay, Jr., will go head-to-head with her in the approaching mayoralty race.

    "May mga paramdam pero 'di ba hanggang sa hindi 'yan nag-fa-file (certificate of candidacy) sa October, 'di natin malalaman," she said at the Kapihan sa Manila Bay news forum. "But as far as I'm concerned, I'm running with the full support of my father."

    The incumbent mayor, who is only on her first term, said she still has to see to the construction of a multibillion-dollar intra-city subway project that may break ground before the year ends, and plans a columbarium and a hospice for the city.

    Pressed about what seemed to be "disarray" in the clan, she said: "We're a normal family, so sa lahat ho naman may hindi pagkakaintindihan... As far as I'm concerned I'm running for re-election with the full blessing and support of my father."

    At present, the family is not joining forces with any party, the local chief executive said. Her father, she said, is busy teaching at the University of Makati, which launched a law school last year.

    Binay vs Binay? Junjun says ready to run vs Abby for Makati mayor


    Posted at Oct 11 2018 03:07 PM | Updated as of Oct 11 2018 04:30 PM




    MANILA - Makati Mayor Jun Jun Binay on Thursday said he is ready to run for his city's top post and challenge the re-election bid of his sister, Mayor Abigail Binay-Campos, if he perceives enough public clamor. 

    Abigail earlier said her candidacy has the backing of her father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, who is running for Congress in the May 2019 polls. 


    Jun-jun, however, said his elder sister destroyed the Binay brand of public service with her supposed refusal to interact with the masses -- which is what he did at the start of the filing of certificates of candidacy on Thursday. 

    The former mayor kissed the hands of the elderly, dropped by a wake and distributed wheelchairs during an unannounced visit of residents along Makati's Singakamas Street. 

    Short of disowning his sister, Jun-jun also said a "Binay versus Campos" fight will likely erupt in the 2019 polls, stressing that it is Abigail who has repeatedly said that she is only a Binay in name and has governed unlike her brother and father. 

    The 2 Binay men are facing cases over the allegedly anomalous P2.2-billion Makati City Hall building 2 project -- the same issue that led to Jun-jun's dismissal in 2016. 


    The Binay patriarch is out of the country but is expected to be back over the weekend. His family will then thresh out who should run for mayor. 

    But whether the elder Binay supports Abigail or not, Jun-jun said his decision to run for mayor will depend on public support, not the backing of their father. 

    Majority of Makati's councilors and barangay captains have withdrawn support for Abby in favor of her father due to supposed delays in the release of perks for residents. 

    Abigail on Wednesday shrugged off the recent development, saying: "Hindi ako natatakot. I don't know if this is a PR campaign to get a bandwagon but I am confident." 

    "Nu'ng umupo ako noong 2016, andami kong problemang minana na kailangan kong ayusin. Andami kong sistemang nadatnan na bulok na kailangan itama," she added. 

    (I am not afraid. I don't know if this is a PR campaign to get a bandwagon but I am confident. When I took over in 2016, I inherited so many problems, rotten systems that needed reform

    MANILA, Philippines — Former Makati City Mayor Jejomar “Junjun” Binay Jr. on Tuesday formalized his bid to challenge his sister, Abigail, on the leadership of Makati.

    News5 reported that Junjun has filed his certificate of candidacy on Tuesday, with his running mate Monsour del Rosario and others who will run as councilors under their tandem.

    Junjun was accompanied by his sister, Sen. Nancy Binay, who is also seeking a new term in the Senate.

    Incumbent Makati Mayor Abby appealed on Monday that his brother should give her a chance.

    She told ANC’s “Headstart” that she has been with Junjun through hard and happy times. “I was standing up for him. I’m the elder sister. I wish he would give me a chance,” she added.

    The Binay patriarch, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, was expected to intervene in the public tug-of-war between Junjun and Abby. He instead distanced himself and said that he will not choose between the two on who should run for mayoral seat in Makati City, their clan’s bailiwick.

    “The people of Makati will decide on that,” the former vice president said in a statement on Monday.

    Junjun served as Makati mayor from 2010 until 2015, when he was dismissed by the Office of the Ombudsman.

    The ombudsman found the then-Makati mayor guilty of grave misconduct and serious dishonesty over his involvement in the alleged overpriced construction of the Makati City Science High School building.

    The Court of Appeals, in May this year, reversed the ombudsman’s dismissal.

    Meanwhile, the family patriarch is gunning for a seat at the House of Representatives for the First District of Makati City. 

    The eldest daughter, Nancy, was accompanied by Junjun when she filed her COC for a Senate seat last Friday.

    Junjun Binay files COC in challenge to sister Abby's re-election


    Posted at Oct 16 2018 10:18 AM | Updated as of Oct 16 2018 12:04 PM

    MANILA - Former Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin "Junjun" Binay Jr on Tuesday filed his certificate of candidacy to return to city hall, possibly blocking the re-election bid of his sister, incumbent Mayor Abigail "Abby" Binay.Their father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, said he respects Junjun and Abby's decision to run and will leave it up to the people of Makati to choose who best deserves their vote.
    Junjun, whose dismissal was ordered by the Ombudsman in 2015, tapped Makati 1st District Rep. and former Olympian Monsour Del Rosario as his running mate.He has said he is ready to run for his city's top post if there is public clamor. He alleged that his sister failed to interact with the masses, contrary to the family's brand of public service.
    In a tearful interview on Monday, Abby said the rift between her and Junjun "will divide our family even after the elections," as he pleaded that he give her a "chance."
    "He will have his turn. He had his turn. It doesn’t make sense that when he was mayor, I would have said, ‘Dad I want to run for mayor,'" she told ANC's Headstart."I hope that he goes beyond the interests of people around him. This is not about his friends. This is not about the people that have allowed to whisper into his ear and say ‘You have to run.’ There is no clamor," she said."You have to be man enough to say ‘I will give my ate a chance because that is what my father and our family wants,'" she added.Based on documents acquired by ABS-CBN News, Junjun is among people perpetually disqualified from public office in connection with the construction of the P1.3 billion Makati Science High School building. This was confirmed by the city director of the Department of the Interior and Local Government.
    James Jimenez, spokesperson of the Comelec, said the poll body would have to "determine the circumstances" around Junjun's supposed disqualification because "a final conviction will bar you from running for office.""But if there’s any appeal, or if it’s not a final decision, then it won’t fit the criteria for disqualification," he said.

    Junjun, whose dismissal was ordered by the Ombudsman in 2015, registered his own candidacy on Tuesday. 


    He earlier alleged alleged that his sister failed to interact with the masses, contrary to the family's brand of public service.
