Makati City vice mayor Romulo “Kid” Peña was sworn in as the city’s acting mayor on Tuesday morning after the second suspension order against Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay was posted at the entrance of the Makati City Hall.


Peña, a member of the Liberal Party, was sworn in at the old City Hall Building. This was the second time in less than four months that Peña was mandated to take over Binay’s post.

In March, he also served as Makati’s acting mayor when Binay was first ordered suspended by the Ombudsman. He came back to being Vice Mayor in April following a temporary restraining order secured by Binay’s camp from the Court of Appeals which stopped the suspension.

Violence earlier erupted among supporters of Binay and the police after officials of Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) served the suspension order at the city hall.
