MANILA, Philippines — The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) has named Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay, as its 12th senatorial candidate for the 2013 polls.

Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco, UNA Secretary general, confirmed this in a statement Thursday.

UNA is the new coalition formed between Binay’s PDP-Laban and former President Joseph Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino.

In his statement, Tiangco cited Binay’s high performance ratings in surveys, and noted the “groundswell of support” from sectoral groups and non-governmental organizations nationwide.

“We cannot ignore these voices and their commitment to help Nancy and the entire senatorial slate of UNA,” Tiangco said.

Tiangco said UNA was certain that the young Binay would bring to the Senate the “Binay brand of outstanding public service as exemplified by the social programs initiated by her father.

“With her father working tirelessly in the executive department, we can now be assured that there will be additional legislative support in Congress that will bring the social benefits currently being enjoyed by the citizens of Makati to all Filipinos,” he added.

Tiangco noted that Vice President Binay had initially opposed his daughter’s candidacy, but that he changed his mind when former President Joseph Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile voted for her to run.

With Nancy Binay entering the coalition, the three UNA leaders – Binay, Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile – would have their children running for senator in the 2013 polls.

Representatives Jackie Ponce Enrile and JV Ejercito are also running under UNA.

Among those in UNA’s senatorial slate are Sen. Greogrio Honasan, Rep. Milagros Magsaysay, former senators Ernesto Maceda, Juan Miguel Zubiri and Richard Gordon, and former Tarlac Governor Margarita “Tingting” Cojuangco.

Senators Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Loren Legarda, and MTRCB chairperson Grace Poe Llamanzares are guest candidates of the coalition.
In a text message, UNA spokesperson JV Bautista said Binay would be filing her candidacy at the main office of the Comelec in Intramuros Friday at 3 p.m.

Binay replaced Joey de Venecia III, who withdrew his candidacy at the last minute, citing business reasons.

UNA had been choosing between Binay, a neophyte in politics, and Puerto Princesa City Mayor Edward Hagedorn to take the slot vacated Monday by De Venecia.

Hagedorn filed his certificate of candidacy as an independent on Wednesday.  Binay’s daughter had never sought an elective post unlike her siblings.

De Venecia said he would stick with his business ventures in the business process outsourcing and technology industries as he could contribute more in the private sector than in an elected position at this time.

The son of former House Speaker Jose De Venecia Jr. however remains a member of PDP-Laban. With reports from Maila Ager, INQUIRER.net and Tarra Quismundo, Philippine Daily Inquirer

    O ano ba naman ang qualifications nitong si Nancy Binay? Anyway, ngayon malinaw na sa atin na gusto ni Jojo Binay kontrolin ang bayan. Takot tayo kay Teddy Casino, takot tayo kay Trillanes pero di tayo takot sa pamilya Binay, pamilya Estrada, pamilya Enrile, pamilya Gloria Arroyo.

    Ngayon pa lang tigilan natin pag boto sa mga Binay sa senado, sa kongreso, sa mayor ng Makati! Huwag na din natin paratingin si Jojo Binay sa Malakanyang!

    Nancy who?

  • DarkJustice

    Let an individual build his name/career before embarking in one field. I am not against if Binay’s children will run for any position UNLESS he/she had already proven herself in that capacity. Pero hindi eh,si JunJun ilang taong nag-councilor muna, si Abby sa Rep,si Nancy ano? Tanong lang po!

  • andresa igbac

    ah ewan ko sa inyo UNA, basta ako iboboto ko si Mayor Hagedorn at si Danton Remoto. 

  • Labandera1

    May kutob na ako noong biglang umatras si Joey de Vinecia na ipalit ni Binay ang kanyang anak hayan nagkatutuo na. Hahay naku po, another day another Binay… Sabi pa ni Enrile ang motto ng una ay: All For One and One For All —-Which means Binay Enrile Estrada and Estrada Enrile Binay….ngayon naman nadagdagan pa ng ” Anak ni Binay, Anak ni Enrile Anak ni Estrada and Anak ni Estrada Anak ni Enrile Anak ni Binay…

    • droccu

      Oo nga ano?! Mga UNAng anak ba mga ito?

  • droccu

    Another candidate I’m surely NOT gonna vote for….next to Mitos, Zubiri and Jack Enrile! My UNA list is starting to pile up…in the negative direction!

  • JV Velarde

    UNA’s senatorial line-up in pinoy lingo is at best “kanin-baboy”:

    1. Mitos Magsaysay (die-hard A r r o y o – k i s s a s s)
    2. Migz Zubiri (2007 election cheat)
    3. Maceda (Octogenarian TRAPO)
    4. JV Ejercito (son of a convicted plunderer)
    5. Binays’ daughter (WTF)
    6. Enrile’s son (WTF)
    7. Honasan (chronic coup plotter)

    hindi po groundswell of support ang naramdaman nyo. lindol po yon sa mindoro at batangas.
    pero mga kababayan malakas ang makinarya politika ng mga ito.

  • repapips

    obvious naman na talagang hindi kasama si de venecia sa lineup. gimik lang. kasi nga lahat na ng anak ng tatlo kitang kita. so kunwari lang sa bandang huli papasok si nancy. alam naman ng lahat ng empleyado ng sa makati gov’t na tatakbong senador si daughter binay e. 

    UNA… muna ang pamilya.

  • tagasampaloc

    Ang mga Binays ay gustong TUMAKBO: si ANAK Abigail para congress, si ANAK Nancy para senador at si ANAK Michael para makati mayor.

    Pati na si MISIS Elena Binay ay gusto rin TUMAKBO-   NANG PALAYO kay COA auditor Heidi Mendoza!!!!
    Masaya talaga ang dating sa Pinas hehehe 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BL2GYU35SO6HTJUEAUTXS3QFYM George Lapulapu

    UNA Pamilya
    sabi ni JV kanina ang 12th candidate daw nila di daw TRAPO… hahaha talaga?! BASAHAN!

  • tagasampaloc

    Uso talaga ngayon ang TUMAKBO tulad nang sigaw nang paslit sa movie “RUN FOREST RUN”.

    Si Goyang ay gustong tumakbo para congress pero tumakbo siya sa VMCC para iwas aresto selda..

    Pacquiao, misis at bayaw ay pareho tatakbo sa politika at si Manny ay tunay na tumakbo bilang paghahanda sa Marquez fight nang marinig ang sigaw nang mga bungaw na “Run Manny Run”

    Laging masaya talaga sa Pinas hehehe
