MANILA — Rep. Abigail Binay revealed that if her mother, Elenita Binay were to decide, she would choose Vice President Jejomar Binay to drop the presidential bid this coming elections.
”If you ask my mom she’ll probably say, ‘Yes. I want your dad to quit,”’ Rep. Binay said in an interview for ANC’s Headstart.
She added that her mother is already affected by the recent issues emerging against the Vice President and their family.
Rep. Binay also revealed that her mother kept on asking her father why he still have to run for president in the coming elections.
”I know she keeps on telling my dad, ‘Why are we doing this?'”
The statement was made following the allegations raised against Binay and their family.
Rep. Binay, however said that there’s no stopping his father anymore.
‘If you do that, you are in effect telling them, ‘You’ve won.’ We don’t want to give them that prize. Parang sinabi mo na na, ‘O sige dahil binugbog niyo na kami ng sobra-sobra, mag-quit na kami,”’ she said.
‘We have to be vindicated. We have to prove to people that they are lying. We have to prove to these people na walang katotohanan lahat ng binibintang nila (that there is no truth to their allegations),” she added.
