Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay said she has the support of her father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, in her bid to win a fresh term in 2019.

Abby made the statement on Wednesday amid the possibility that her brother, Jejomar “Junjun” Binay Jr., will run against her to reclaim his old post.

“I’m running with the full support of my dad,” she said.

Abby admitted that her brother have sent feelers about seeking the mayoralty post next year but she “can’t say” if he will push through with the plan.

“May mga paramdam pero hanggat hindi nagfa-file hindi natin malalaman,” she said.

Abby said she wants to become mayor of Makati City for two more terms because of big-ticket projects that will start soon, such as the construction of a subway.

“Gusto ko pagkatapos ng third term ko, gusto ko may maiwan akong legacy na maipagmamalaki,” she said.
