Sibling rivalry heats up! Abby tells Junjun: 2019 will be ‘Binay vs. Binay,’ not Campos
Makati City Mayor Abby Binay has accused her brother, former mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay, of being sexist when he remarked that their face off in the 2019 elections will be tagged “Binay vs. Campos.”
Abby told dZMM radio on Friday that the looming fight in Makati will be between Binays.
“Noong ipinanganak ako, Binay ako. Mamatay ako, Binay ako. And I find that sexist, napaka-sexist ng remark na ‘yan. May karapatan ang isang babae kung gusto ba niyang i-hyphenate, i-adopt o ‘wag i-adopt ang apelyido ng asawa niya,” she said.
Abby is married to Makati City Rep. Jose Luis Campos.
Should Junjun push through with his candidacy for mayor, Abby said she will use her achievements to court votes.
“Sa lahat ng pagtakbo ko, sa lahat ng eleksyon na nakasama ako, hindi ko tinitingnan ang kalaban ko. Kasi mananalo ako, tatayuan ko ang sarili ko, hindi ‘yung kahinaan ng kalaban ko,” she said.
