Unlike dad, Abby Binay gets INC endorsement


What does Makati Rep. Abby Binay have that her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay wishes he had?

The Iglesia Ni Cristo’s (INC) endorsement, that’s what.”Buong pakumbaba kong tinatanggap ang tiwala at suporta ng Iglesia Ni Cristo,” said Rep. Binay after learning of the bloc-voting religious sect’s backing.

The lady solon is gunning for the mayoralty post opposite the Liberal Party’s (LP) Mayor Kid Peña.

Peña took over the top local post after Rep. Binay’s brother, ex-mayor Junjun Binay, was dismissed by the Office of the Ombudsman.

“Nangangako kaming lahat sa Team Binay na ipagpapatuloy namin ang sinimulan ni VP Jojo Binay. Ang serbisyong subok na ay dadagdagan pa ng serbisyong Abby Binay,” the congresswoman vowed.

Rep. Binay’s running mate, fellow solon Monique Lagdameo also won the nod of the INC.

Vice President Binay, standard-bearer of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), failed to get the endorsement of the INC.

The sect picked Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte as its presidential candidate.
