MANILA, Philippines — Former Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay Jr. said on Saturday that he regretted having an argument with his sister, Makati Mayor Abigail “Abby” Binay, at the San Ildefonso Parish Church in Makati last April.

“What happened in church was a regrettable incident. It should not have happened. I could have been a better person,” Junjun, speaking partly in Filipino, said in an ambush interview before capping off his campaign in Barangay Northside in Makati on Saturday. “But then, I’m only human. Getting shouted at, threatened, I couldn’t stand it. How I wish that event never happened.”
