Former Vice President Jejomar Binay isn’t giving up his bid to become the congressman of Makati’s first district despite losing to former Vice Mayor Kid Peña.

In a letter to Philippine Star editor Ana Marie Pamintuan, Binay said the election result “does not accurately reflect the true will of the voters of my district.”

He explained that voter preference surveys conducted by “reputable” firms from September 2018 to April 2019 showed him winning by a “considerable margin” over Peña.

Binay said he also received endorsements from the Iglesia Ni Cristo and “significant sectoral groups in Makati.”

“Let me assure you that at the proper time, we will reveal facts, data and evidence that would show why the election result does not accurately reflect the true will of the voters of my district,” the former Vice President said.

Peña won over Binay by over 5,000 votes.
