Junjun Binay scoffs at Abby’s claim of easy victory: Yabang lang ‘yan!
Former Makati City mayor Junjun Binay has shrugged off the claim of his sister, incumbent mayor Abby Binay, that she will coast to an easy victory in the upcoming polls.
In an interview over CNN Philippines “The Source” on April 2, Junjun said Abby would have not gotten help from their father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, if she was confident she can handily win the mayoralty race.
“Siguro hindi niya kailangang pilitin yung tatay ko na ikampanya siya kung sobrang lakas niya at kung sinasabi nga niya na ang tinutungtungan niya yung performance, eh di sana Campos na yung ginamit niya,” he said, referring to Abby’s married surname.
In a recent interview, Abby said she believes the campaign for the midterm polls will be easier compared to the first time she ran for mayor in 2016.
“Mas madali dahil nung 2016 ang kalaban ko nakaupo nung 2016 ako’y pabakasiyon— nakapaglingkod ng tama. So parang ito ngayon chill-chill lang tayo sa darating na 45 days,” she said.
Junjun, however, said his sister was just bragging.
“That’s my sister. Talagang ‘yun talaga ang yabang niya. She makes it appear na walang laban,” he said.
