Makati Mayor Abby Binay dedicates her latest electoral victory to her father

0 245

Makati Mayor Abby Binay’s most recent victory in the polls is bittersweet.

While she has been successful in her three bids to sit as Makati Mayor, it has not been the same for her father Jejomar, who lost his presidential bid in 2016, and his congressional bid in 2019.

He ran for Senator in the May 9 elections, and is currently 13th in the rankings.

“For the past three elections as Makati Mayor, my proclamations have been bittersweet. Nanalo ako pero hindi naman pinapalad ang Daddy ko. Masakit tanggapin na di tinadhanang magkasabay kaming nagdidiwang,” she said.

But she believes everything happens for a reason, she said.

For now, she offers her victory to her father.

“Lahat ng panalo ko, inaalay ko sayo, Dad,” she said.
