Binay move no big deal for Palace

By

MANILA, Philippines—Vice President Jejomar Binay’s formation of a senatorial slate under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) banner shouldn’t affect the Aquino administration’s working relationship with the country’s second highest executive, Malacañang said on Saturday.

“It is a widely known fact that President Aquino and Vice President Binay belong to different political parties,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a text message to the Inquirer on Saturday afternoon.

“It should not get in the way of governance,” she added.

Valte made the remarks in response to a question on whether the Aquino administration would continue supporting Binay even when the latter’s political plans are proving to be separate from those of President Aquino’s ruling Liberal Party.

A member of the Aquino administration despite belonging to another party, Binay is the chair of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council. He is also the Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ Affairs.

Apart from forming a senatorial slate, Binay has also made known his presidential ambition and is expected to run for the presidency in 2016.

Binay is the chairperson of the PDP-Laban, which has formed the UNA coalition with former President Joseph Estrada’s Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino.  Binay was Estrada’s running mate when the latter ran again for president in 2010.

Estrada placed second to then Senator Aquino in the presidential race while Binay pulled a surprise come-from-behind win over Mr. Aquino’s running mate, then senator and now Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas II.

Roxas, the president of the LP, is expected to be the party standard bearer in 2016.

Some supporters of President Aquino riled the LP when they opted to support Binay’s candidacy instead of Roxas’, coming out with the so-called Noy-Bi (Noynoy-Binay) ticket.

    The ombudsman should make an honest to goodness audit of Binay’s shady deals to reveal the truth about his character so the people may know.  It is common knowledge among businessmen in Makati how corrupt the Binay family is.

    • pulis

      Hwag na tayong mag taka, kahit nga mga KKK corrupt rin…

  • JK1000

    A lot of Businessman in Makati knew how this NO SHAME Binay family corrupt they are. They really love to get rid of the Dynasty the older Binay created. NO TO BINAY ! NO TO CORRUPTION !

  • pilosopo4

    If the Binays are really that corrupt how come the people of Makati keep voting them in office? The Makati businessmen with all their resources combined could have simply mounted a campaign long time ago to unseat the Binays..now we see VP Jejomar setting his sights on the Presidency in 2016..and we are running scared and start talking how corrupt he is..why? Let the people decide..perhaps it is about time the people choose someone else unknown to all..like someone HONEST.

    • INQ_reader

      What looks like a clean house does not mean that nothing was stolen. Just ask condo developers in Makati what Binay asks for in return for a building permit. A condo unit for every building permit, perhaps?

  • alazzka

    This is no big deal if the NOYNOYING President fully supports Mar Roxas with all his heart.  But what if his purported support is just for show or what we call MALASADO? If Binay’s senatorial slate will win in this upcoming senatorial derby coupled with a majority in the local level that will really be a big deal.

    Ang mali kasi ni PNoy sa ay akala niya ang pagkapag-presidente niya utang na loob niya kay Roxas.

    Buti nga kumandidato siya. Kundi malamang talo si Roxas either by Villar or Erap.

    Kahit ngayon ang full support ng Aquino sisters from Ballsy to Kris ay kay Jejomar Binay.

    Si Binay, kailanman, anumang mangyari, di iiwanan, di pababayaan sina Noynoy at mga kapatid niya.

  • cantonese

    As long as future PRESIDENT BINAY will not be a NOYNOYING vice president then, presidency position will be serve in a gold platter to the UNA party.

    Si Pnoy agreed na 50-50 ang sneatorial slate alliance sana ng partido ni Pnoy at partido ni Bnay.

    Ayaw ni Roxas and Drilon.

    Kaya hanap naman ng makakasama si Biany. Pero ang supporta ng mga kapatid ni Pnoy ay Kay Binay.

    Pilipino pa rin ang pipili ng mga Senador. Ang sinumang lalabas ay susuporta pa rin kay PNoy hanggang 2016 basta gawin lang niya (ni Pnoy ang naraarapat.

    Never mind Binay, Never Mind Surveys:
    1. Stamp out Graft and Corruption. Leave a legacy of a decent governance system.

    2. Move full blast in eadicationg poverty. Be supportive of measures that will encourage more foeeign direct investments.

    3. End the communist and Muslim issues.

  • Beguine

    All Filipino voters should have a mantra against Binay’s
    ambition to become the next President.

    The mantra is, Binay’s party is The Plunderers (Erap- and Gloria)
    party, with Binay as the Future Plunderer.

    Just that, but that’s enough to destroy any of Binay’s future hopes
    of becoming President.

    I believe PHL Presidency is a sort of a destiny and those who openly seek it will not get it. We may not know that someone will just suddenly appear in the scene and win the 2016 presidency. That someone may be in the making and would become quite popular perhaps by this ongoing Corona impeachment trial.

    Btw, I guess VP Binay is committing a very big mistake by aligning and identifying himself with those questionable characters from the previous administrations.

    The demise of LP seems inevitable. Pinoy’s vindictive and ill-advised maneuvers will mainly be responsible. He is going to be a lameduck president. If CJ Corona will be acquitted by the Impeachment Court, goodbye LP. A one-term presidency will always result to lameduct presidency unless of course if the president is extraordinarily an achiever of which Pinoy is not. He is taken for a ride by rhe usual opportunists, like Speaker Belmonte and his elks in Congress and civil society.

  • http://pinoy-politics.blogspot.com Monsi Serrano

    For sure Binay will forge alliance even with the devil in the deep blue sea so long as he will win the 2016 election. Hindi din ako magtataka kung isasangla nya ang kaluluwa nya kay Satanas manalo lang sya!

    Pag ang anak ni Binay naging senator at naging presidente si Binay, pupunta na lang ako ng Afghanistan. Eh nung hindi nakaupo sa isang restaurant si Abby Binay, kahit na nagpakilala sya kasi fully book, the following day sarado yung resto. Wow, nakakatakot. Sabi ko nga kay Mike Enriquez, “scary ang mga Binay sa ginawa nila. Di pa presidente, ganun ng umasta.” Ang sagot ni Mike sa akin: “MISMO!”

    If I may, let me share what Mr. Joel Reyes Zobel wrote in his column in The Philippine Business and News Forum and Editorial ng Bayan in GMA-DZBB 4-5PM program about Binay. The title of his article written last July 6, 2010 was “Half Full. Half Empty”. Here goes:

    I have gone through 5 days with Binay and I already miss Noli De Castro who was a very low profile but efficient worker. De Castro worked on the housing program and his role as Vice President with basically the same resources. Never quibbled, tried to be effective without drawing too much attention to himself. Conversely, Binay never took a break from his usual self. First is his beef with the wang-wang. Before you know it, he is beating a red light and going into a no entry street. You should have seen his face when Kara David queried him on the infractions. His reaction was a king who was vexed because a citizen was bold enough to ask his royal highness. Before you know it, he is asking for a palace, the coconut palace. Personally, I think this should be given to him so he can stay indoors and refrain from being a clear and present danger on the street.

    As my lola used to say, “beware of coconuts in palaces.” For all intents and purposes, it is already a deadly confirmation. I have always said that the worst kind of animals is the one who endangers others. An African proverb goes, “If you run after two hares, you will catch neither.” Last May we voted the top 2 officials of the land. President Aquino leading by example. Perhaps, the African proverb might be wrong. If you run after two hares, you might catch both, although they may not be the same quality.

    Now think about it… and how will he behave when he sits down as president…. GOD forbid!

    • fairtruth

      Then you must have gone to IRAQ, LIBYA, FALKISLANDS  already after ERAP won the presidency or vice -presidency and his son JINGOY, wife ELOISA became senators, or when GLORIA ARROYo  became president and her son became congressmen,  or WHEN NINOY WAS ELECTED CONGRESSMAN and his UNCLE BUTCH AQUINO Become senator or WORST.. when AQUINO become president and he appointed ABAD’S  FAMILY in the government….Secretary Butch Abad being the DBM SECRETARY, 
      her daughter and son, Julia, who is Presidential Management Staff (PMS) head, with Cabinet status who will be handling Aquino’s huge pork barrel; and Luis Abad, who is chief of staff of Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima… aside from ABAD”s wife Rep. Henedina Abad ….AND we have also the TUPAZES who is everywhere in the government of PNOY…..NAPAKARAMI KAYANG CRITICAL NA LUGAR NA NAABOTAN MO PARE..HINDI PO BA?

    Pure Speculation ko lang Naman:

    Walang mananalong re-electionist na Senators na boboto for the acquittal of corona.

    kapag si JP Enrile ay bumuto for acquittal of corona hinding-hindi mananalo si Jakie Enrile.

    Kapag si Jinggoy ay bumoto for the acquittal of corona di mananalo si JV Ejercito. Pero ito yata ang gusto ni Jinggoy na huwag manalo si JV Ejercito.

    Kapag iyang si coko ay bumoto for acquittal of corona, mawawalan ng isang taga-mindanao sa senate.

    Escudero and Legarda will really be tempting the FATES if they are to vote for the acquittal of corona.

    BINAY AND ERAP allies of PNOY.  Binay and Erap are against ROXAS.

    • fairtruth

      KAHIT SAAN BOBOTO SILA…BASTA WITH SENSE OF JUSTICE AND NOT FOR POLITICAL CONVENCIENCE MANALO SILA…hindi basta bubuto lang sila kahit walang legal basis in favor of conviction of corona eh manalo sila…..di bobo ang mga tao…at di rin yellow bacteria infected lahat.. Take the case of enrile, jinggoy, and mirriam…natalo ba sila?…..  aside from this ..other interested parties who are after the truth like THE INCs  are looking for a fair trial and not just conviction due to vindictiveness and political convenience..

      Isang napakalinaw na indikasyon ito na wala ng naniniwala sa pangulo kasi after 3 days dumagsa ang taongbayan sa okasyon ng INC na lantaran naman sumusuporta kay CJ Corona. Maling mali ang spekulasyon mo na ang mag-aacquit kay Corona na senator ay matatalo sa halalan bagkus ito ang mananalo sa halalan kasi nakita na din itong mga manifestation ng taongbayan na ito sa dalawang okasyon na naganap ng Feb 25 at Feb. 28 ng mga senador.

      Kung wala ng suporta ng INC at Catolico si Abnoy saan naman siya pupulot ng botante para iboto ang mga kandidato niya sa halalan sa isang taon ?

    This shows the weakness of the present system of governance, too many elected officials, in the Executive and Legislative branches, each with his/her own agenda. Without a common objective and action plans towards economic growth and political maturity.

    Unlike in a Unicameral Legislative system our Asian neighbors are using where a strong two party system exist; where people vote for the agenda of the party and not the personality of a candidate.

    If this system propelled our Asian neighbors to economic prosperity and effectively worked for them, am sure it will also work for us.

    MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Jejomar Binay denied that his camp is behind the text messages that were sent in blast to various people during the Holy Week break allegedly using his name.

    In the official Twitter account of the Vice President, he said he is “deeply saddened” by the propaganda.

    “Clearly, the intention is to antagonize the public. Holy Week is a time for Christians to reflect on the sufferings of Jesus,” Binay said.

    Examples of the text messages, also received by journalists, are the following:

    “Let’s pray for unity this Holy Week. VP Binay will unite all factions vs the vindictive Yellow Army +Google Manila Times+Binay Senate slate.”

    “Jesus, Joseph & Mary may be gone, but salvation lies in our beloved Jejomar. Go VP Binay+ Pls pass…”

    “Paalala mula sa tanggapan ni VP Binay: Magpaka-Boy Scout ngayong Holy Week – huwag aanga-anga sa daan para hindi manakawan.”

    “We pray that GMA’s StrongRepublic will be realized under Binay’s Strong Leadership. Time to unite. Patawarin ang nagsisisi! Binay sa 2016!”

    Twitter was also abuzz criticizing the text messages.

    Some said that the number used to send the “Binay messages” was also the same one used earlier to send anti-Chief Justice Renato Corona messages.

     
    Binay’s PDP-Laban earlier announced it will join forces with former President Joseph Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino for the 2013 polls.
     
    Talks are also ongoing with other political parties to join the team.

All his actions from now on will be directed towards the attainment  of his ambition. .  and that is the presidency. I am suggesting to President Noynoy the immediate removal of all appointed positions from Binay so that he will NOT be able to use government resources in campaigning for president  especially in the provinces and in the middle east. . .

      The lineup of LP vs UNA can be compared to  good versus evil, respectively.  However, with the names in the LP list,  evil might just prevail in 2013.    The people on the list might be appreciated by voters in the ABC categories but they simply do not have chemistry with the masa public.

      PNOY really needs allies in the senate to support his national agenda. Asking Mar to run for the senate instead of Abad or Biazon might give them a better probability of winning seats.  

      Abad, Biazon, Hontiveros-Barraquel, even LLamanzares  should rethink if they should run in 2013.  They simply do not have the masa charisma to pull it off. RIght now, they are more liabilities than assets to the party.

  • filipinaskoh

    It is too early for Binay to set his political agenda for 2016. He is already forming his supposed to be senators just in case he won. There are a lot of things that could happen and  still many changes that may occur.

    Just like the case of Villar as soon as he ascend as Senate president he immediately draw his plan for president. Too unfortunate for him and Cory died, that paves the way for Noynoy to ascend as the President of the Republic.In his eagerness to be president he became a TRapo that later dumped by many as if he is really a “basahan” too dirty to touch.

    If BInay will become too too excited and become obsess in becoming president he might end worse than Villar.

    Why Binay’s camp and cohorts made a major announcement
    about their senatorial bets for 2013 election during Holy Week
    is a classic case of naive, foolish and insensitive timing.

    Were they perhaps, by any chance trying to project Binay as the future
    Messiah of the Philippines?

    But what it turned out to be was that Binay and his lineup and supporters
    should immediately and without even thinking any further get the
    thumbs down from all Filipinos who love their country and their
    country’s future.

    The future of Pinas cannot be entrusted to Binay, Erap and Gloria Arroyo.
    All three make PNoy a hero compared to them! And the fact is PNoy is not yet
    quite a hero, but at least is well on his way to becoming a really
    good leader compared to blatant opportunist Binay, and evil plunderers Erap
    and Gloria Arroyo.

    We’re in the electronic age, and that will make a very big difference in the
    upcoming elections.

        Ang hirap ke Binay, itatapat sa kanya si Chiz Escudero. Magaling at bata pa. But behind the scene, it will be the Cojuangcos who will win again. Remember, Cojuangco fielded not one but three Presidential Candidates, Gibo, PNoy, and Chiz. Chiz who bolted out because he does not want to associate with Cojunagco who he knows has an ulterior motive, which is the Hacienda LUistia and the Coco Levy funds. 

        This will be an uphill bottle for Binay. But without cheating like vote buying, Binay may have a chance. This will be an ‘anybody’s game’ if PNoy will not run for the second time.

    Binay is from a different political party. Why is it that when a true Filipino lodges it’s candidacy, he is right away booted down as though he does not matter. Our Chinese Dominated Government with it’s Chinese Dominated media is behind these smare campaign. Erap was illegally booted out of Office, again by these Chinese Dominated group including a Chinese Bishop, the late Cardinal Sin. He hehe. Who replaced Erap, a Chinese sympathizer who gave away our territorial water to the Chinese, and brought down our economy by over spending and over borrowing. 

    Before, she took over as our President, we were paying 200 million pesos a day on interest alone. Now, it is more than 1 billion pesos a day. This is the reason why the Chinese Dominated Government always bloats the budget to stay on top of the obligation. Her husband is a pure blooded Chinese.

    Hurray for Binay. He hehehe! Hindi naman tatakbo si Binay sa 2013. What he is emphacising is Senatoriables who will run with UNO in 2013. Eh bakit si Binay agad ang binabakbakan ninyo. He heh e he!

  • Beguine

    PNoy is by no means heroic already. Renato Corona must be finally
    impeached by the Senate first, then Gloria and Mike Arroyo put away and
    locked up behind bars for life. Then, PNoy will have every right to be hailed
    as a good leader, but still not yet a hero. He has to face much more trials
    and tribulations and in the end be true to his vow, “Hindi ako magnanakaw.”

    Binay is just a happy-go-lucky kind of opportunist, willing to form an alliance
    with past plunderers Erap and Gloria Arroyo to fufill his ambition. But the
    Filipino voters are not dumb, at least we hope so in this internet age.
    They already know that whoever plunders the country’s coffers and puts
    money in their bank accounts instead of allocating it for nation building
    deserves to be shunned and punished during election time.

    Binay is a hard working politician and not the noynoying type. Election is almost in the horizon and proactive approaches are being put in place a trade mark for a legitimate leader. PH GDP at 3.7 in 2011is not enough to raise the poor’s standard of living and immediate change in political leadership is what PH needs badly. CJ impeachment is doing more harm to the poor and middle class as we work hard to raise the tax pesos to finance the politician spending in government.

    At this point PH does not need a leader who can only offer to the taxpayers his personal lovelife, family real property in Hacienda Luisita and noynoying work ethics. PH needs more of the CJ caliber that can stand up for the interest of the people including the coconut farmers who suffered a lot on the Cojuangco coco levy era.

    As Filipino citizens, we want to know why the Sandigbayan cleared Mrs. Binay of overpricing furniture purchase prices for two consecutive years on the basis of weak and faulty prosecution cases.  Is sounds so technically familiar?  The citizens of Makati were probably not given any chance to voice their opinions. I am told the Binays ruled Makati like their kingdom. Overpricing the furnitures already smells of graft. Unless you were born yesterday.  It is quite obvious that money was made somewhere yet the Sandiganbayan uses shallow reasons to dismiss the case.  Before we consider voting for Mr. Binay for President, let us think about his track record and the smell of graft that lingers around his political life. Perhaps the reputation of a grafter is no big deal for the Palace?  Or does Binay have some hold on the people in the Palace like he may have in the Judiciary?

    minority bloc in the House of Representatives has accused President
    Aquino of reneging on his promise to appoint only persons of known
    probity and high moral values to key positions in his administration.At
    a press briefing, Zambales Rep. Ma. Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay said
    Aquino broke this pledge when he appointed lawyer Aleta Tolentino as
    director of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
    Magsaysay
    said Tolentino is facing a graft charge for presenting herself
    available for the post despite the string of estafa cases filed against
    her as member of the board of the Pamana Goldencare Foundation Inc.
    Last
    month, lawyer Oliver Lozano filed a graft case before the Office of
    the Ombudsman accusing Tolentino of violating the rule of integrity in
    public office as a result of her appointment to the PCSO board.
    Also charged was PCSO chairman Margarita Juico for her “indispensable participation or cooperation” in Tolentino’s appointment.
    Tolentino
    was the one who accused several Catholic bishops of having received
    luxury sports utility vehicles from former President now Pampanga Rep.
    Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in her infamous “Mitsubishops exposé” last year.
    However, a probe conducted by the Senate showed Tolentino’s exposé was
    inaccurate as no bishop ever received a Mitsubishi Pajero as she had
    alleged.

    Looks like the Liberal Party (LP) still tries to project a
    holier-than-thou image, which is quite hypocritical, besides which, the
    cleaner than clean image they tried to project in 2010 no longer works,
    considering the even greater corruption in the Aquino government today.
    LP
    bigwig Budget Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad, reacting to news
    reports of VP Jojo Binay’s party, having coalesced with Erap Estrada’s
    party to form the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), said the LP is at
    this time not thinking of coalescing with other parties, saying, it is
    too early to make any conclusions, “no matter how tentative, about
    possible coalition arrangements among parties and personalities.”
    He
    added: “For sure, the Aquino administration will not forge any
    coalition with parties and personalities where its anti-corruption and
    good governance will be compromised and weakened,” which was a dig at
    Binay’s UNA, which apparently may be accepting and fielding the allies
    of former President Gloria Arroyo.
    “That’s why (LP) is careful to
    choose its candidates in 2013. If it can, the LP can forge partnerships
    with other parties and groups. But if and when it does, the relationship
    has to be value-based and programmatic,” he said.
    Just who is Butch Abad trying to impress with the LP’s anti-corruption claim, the voters?
    Just
    who did Noynoy and his LP recruit in 2010 to build up the LP if not the
    allies of Gloria Arroyo, who all were her partymates in Lakas but who
    are now LP members?
    Speaker Sonny Belmonte was certainly a Lakas
    stalwart then, Lakas chairman of Quezon City chapter. So were all other
    LPs today in the House, all of whom have allied themselves with Noynoy
    and the LPs.
    Were they recruited because this party and its
    personalities do not “compromise and weaken” the hypocritical
    “anti-corruption” drive of the LP?

    yan ba and Daang tuwid??

    If Roxas is going to run as president of the Philippines in the year 2016, he must show now a powerful statement of results in building infrastructures and PPP, his department has the most numbers of shelved PPP projects and up to now he is not making any move….there are 4 more years left for this administration to pull its act together. It seems to build a typical infrastructure it will take 2 years to plan and another two years to dilly dally and another 2 years to implement…by that time a single pillar is erected, its over and time again for electioneering.

      You are expecting too much from local politicians Bentot. Don’t you know that most of them are all alike? This early,  these creatures are already talking about elections (and preparing too!)  yet they or their departments have not done anything yet to alleviate poverty and global warming in this beautiful but  blighted country. We must remember, the Philippines is one of a number of countries that UN says will be affected most by this modern phenomenon expected to be more  fatal as years go by.

    The President and the Vice President should speak “one language” in running the country and that is why in other countries these two are running mates in the election and win as a team and together in unison for action needed.  In our country’s case it is not that is why long before the next voting the Vice President is already thinking of his/her own agenda rather than supporting, actively pushing for the projects of the government, as seen in present and past administrations.  Vice President Binay springing from a good mayoral performance must show some reforms within the scope of his role as Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ Affairs, as well as chair of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council.   He is a good leader and I hope he could be better.
