Let Makati voters decide! Jojo Binay won’t interfere in Abby-Junjun mayoralty feud

Former Vice President Jejomar Binay has refused to meddle in the mayoralty feud between his two children in their hometown Makati City.

Binay said his children Makati Mayor Abby and former mayor Junjun were old enough to make decisions about their mayoralty bids. Besides, he said the people of Makati will be the ones to vote which of the two young Binays should become the next mayor of Makati City.

“Pareho kong anak sina Abby at Junjun. Napatunayan na nila na pareho silang may kakayanan at karanasan sa paglilingkod sa pamahalaan. Kapwa rin sila may malasakit at tumutulong sa mga mamamayan ng Makati,” he wrote on Facebook.

“Pareho rin silang nasa wastong edad at bilang magulang, ang magagawa ko lamang ay payuhan sila. Hindi ako ang tipo ng magulang na nagdidikta sa buhay ng kanyang mga anak lalo na’t sila ay may sarili nang pag-iisip.

Binay said he respects Abby’s decision to run under United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) while Junjun as mayoralty bet of Una ang Makati (UAM.

“Hindi ako ang magpapasya kung sino sa kanila ang karapat-dapat na maging punong-lungsod. Ang magpapasya nyan ay ang mga mamamayan ng Makati,” he said.

He said the two camps have agreed to keep the mayoralty race peaceful and orderly, and focus the campaign on proposed platform and plans for Makati residents.

“Sasabihan nila ang kanilang mga lider at taga-suporta na maging marangal at mahinahon. Iiwasan ang mga masasakit na pananalita, at gagawing positibo at matiwasay ang ating pangangampanya. Ipapakita namin na ang Makati ay magiging modelo ng marangal at malinis na halalan,” he said.

“Anuman ang maging resulta ng eleksyon sa Mayo 2019, ang matitiyak namin ay magpapatuloy ang Serbisyong Binay para sa mga taga-Makati. At anuman ang maging resulta ng eleksyon, isang pamilya pa rin kami na hindi maaaring paghiwalayin at sirain ng pulitika,” he said.
