Acknowledging the gesture, Binay thanked the Aquino sisters, saying the ties between their families “transcended politics.”

TV host and actress Kris Aquino declared her and her three sisters’ support for Binay as a potential successor of the President on her program with cohost Boy Abunda on Tuesday night. . “My sisters and I have been talking about it [LP adopting Binay], and we say that if this can bring about unity as … we’re not enemies… and if he continues what Noy has started, why not?” the youngest of the Aquino siblings said in Filipino. Inquirer

Estrada, now Manila mayor, said that Binay had assured him that he would reject any offer to be the LP guest candidate in 2016. ” I told him (Binay) that there is no need for him to accept any invitation from the LP because he is already way ahead in the surveys. He (Binay) told me that all this talk of being invited by LP was just speculation,” Estrada said. “The media just got its news late.” Inquirer

Estrada said that Binay would be making a big mistake if he joined the LP. “UNA will be forced to field a candidate to replace him because there will be no opposition to run against the administration,” he said. Asked if he was interested in replacing Binay as UNA’s standard-bearer, Estrada replied: “I’m not saying that.” But Estrada told the Inquirer that Binay himself had recognized that he was the main stumbling block to the latter’s dream to be the next President.“I am the only candidate he (Binay) is afraid of,” the Manila mayor said. Binay and Estrada are banking on the support of the same base of Class C, D and E voters. Inquirer
