Binay joins wife, daughter Abby in voting

/ 01:07 PM May 09, 2016

United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) standard-bearer Vice President Jejomar Binay accompanied his wife Elenita and daughter, Makati mayoralty bet Abigail “Abby” Binay, in voting on Monday.


Binay accompanied his wife Dr. Elenita Binay past 9:30 a.m. at San Antonio National High School to vote.

Elenita was accompanied by their youngest daughter Anne, who also voted.


Makati Rep. Abby Binay, gunning for Makati mayor, cast her vote with her husband Luis Campos at San Jose Elementary School around 11 a.m.

Campos is running in the place of his wife as Makati representative.

Abby and Luis fell in line before casting their vote at clustered precinct 361.

In an interview while his daughter is lining up to vote, the vice president said he accompanied his loved ones to give moral support, especially to her daughter Abby, who is vying for the Makati mayoral seat which he held for 21 years.

“Anak ko po iyon (She is my daughter). Moral support,” Binay told reporters at San Jose Elementary School.

He said he feels like he had already won with the warm response he got from Makati residents on election day.

“Wala. Matutuwa ka sa lahat ng bumabati sa kalye (Nothing. I was happy because people were greeting me on the streets),” Binay said when asked if he felt nervous.


Binay said he hoped his fears of election cheating would not happen, a plan allegedly intended to derail his presidential bid.

“Mukhang hindi pa nangyayari yung massive cheating, pero hindi pa tapos ang halalan (It seems like there is no massive cheating as of now, but the elections are not yet over). It ain’t over until it’s over,” Binay said.

Binay said he is not even thinking of what his plans would be in case he loses the elections.

For the vice president, he is set in his mind that he would win.

“Mukhang ako na talaga ang panalo (It seems that I won),” Binay said.
