Kumampi na! Jojo Binay bets on Abby for Makati mayor race
Their father didn’t stay neutral after all.
Incumbent Mayor Abigail Binay has filed her certificate of candidacy for reelection in Makati City on Wednesday, Oct. 17 amid a worsening word war with brother ex-Mayor Junjun Binay. Their father, ex-Vice President Jejomar Binay, came with her to the local Commission on Elections office.
Junjun filed his candidacy a day earlier but did not have their dad with him. On Tuesday, he claimed that this was because the older Binay wanted to stay out of their sibling rivalry.
It turns out that their dad was out to back her sister after all. The older Binay is running as district representative.
