Makati first district Rep. Romulo “Kid” Peña is now on the side of Mayor Abby Binay, two years after he defeated her father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, in the congressional race.

Peña, like Abby, is running for reelection in 2022. The mayor’s father, meanwhile, is eyeing a Senate seat.

In a statement after filing his certificate of candidacy October 7, Peña stressed the importance of unity in helping the city recover from COVID-19.

“Hindi pa po natatapos ang laban sa COVID-19, kung kaya’t kailangan antin ng tunay na pagkakaisa sa Makati upang tiyaking matutupad ang lahat ng magandang plano para sa ating siyudad at para tayo ay mapanumbalik sa normal na takbo ng buhay,” he said.

“Dahil dito, nais kong ipaalam sa inyo na kasama ninyo ako sa pagsuporta sa kandidatura nila Mayora Abby Binay, Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo at lahat ng kanilang mga kandidatong konsehal sa darating na halalan,” Peña added.
