Gumaganti? Kid Peña wants my office shut down— Abi Binay

Makati City Rep. Mar-len Abigail Binay has accused acting City Mayor Romulo “Kid” Peña of harassment after he supposedly ordered her to vacate her office at the City Hall.

Binay told the Manila Times that Peña had issued an order last week telling her to clear her office by November 11 because it will be used by acting Vice Mayor Leonardo Magpantay.

“Pinalayas ako sa opisina kasi gagamitin na raw ni acting vice mayor. So, okay lang! Ako naman eh masunuring bata lang. Wala akong magagawa, ’yun ang patakaran nila eh,” she said at the sidelines of the 1st Makati Food Festival at the Greenbelt 3 Park, Ayala Center.

Aside from shutting her office down, the lawmaker said Peña also ordered the city government employees assigned to her office be recalled and start reporting to their mother units.

When Peña was installed as the acting mayor, he recalled that the Binays gave him an old and cramped space for an office when he was elected as vice mayor instead of having him use his predecessor’s office.

Peña said the space where he was supposed to hold office was instead given to Abi Binay and her fellow Makati lawmaker, Monique Lagdameo.

Binay and Peña are set to square off in the 2016 elections for the mayoralty post. The daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay has decided to run for local chief executive after her brother, Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay, was dismissed from government service by the Office of the Ombudsman.
