Binay on winning back Senate seat: ‘Para akong nanganak uli’
MANILA, Philippines — “Para akong nanganak uli!”
Reelected Senator Nancy Binay had this to say on Wednesday about her reelection journey during the midterm polls, which she described as “birthing labor.”
“Parang fourth time to give birth, kasi nga ‘yung waiting, alam mo namang may lalabas na maganda pero hindi mo alam kung kailan siya lalabas,” Binay told reporters in an interview at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).
“So ganun ‘yung feeling na parang finally, natapos na tayo,” he added.
Binay claimed the last spot in the so-called Magic 12 senators after garnering 14,504,936 votes.
Winning senators were proclaimed on Wednesday at the PICC, more than a week after the May 13 elections. (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
