Former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada said yesterday that  Vice President Jejomar Binay remains the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)’s standard bearer for 2016,. “Right now, our candidate (for president in 2016) is Vice President Jojo Binay. He is a very strong candidate, that is why they are running after him, We talked on the phone. Our conversation did not reach the point of him giving an assurance that he will stay with UNA,” he added. Estrada said he and Binay will meet next week. Philippine Star

Estrada said he cannot blame the sisters of President Aquino – especially Kris and Ballsy ndash; if they are supporting Binay’s bid for the presidency. We cannot also blame him if he is maintaining his close ties with the Aquino family. He is like family to the Aquinos, The Vice President helped them during the time that they needed him and they cannot forget that. I admire them for that. It’s like a debt of gratitude of the Aquinos to Binay,” The Mayor Said. Philippine Star

Meanwhile Sen Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said he has no plan to run for president in 2016. He issued the statement amid reports that his mother, Rep. Imelda Romualdez Marcos, has been meeting with political leaders for his candidacy in 2016. The younger Marcos said he is not aiming for higher office at this time. Philippine Star
