Las Piñas City, Philippines – Vice President Jejomar Binay picked on LP’s Secretary Mar Roxas anew over his allegeded ineptitude during a sortie in Las Piñas City.
The Vice President, the United Nationalist Alliance’s presidential standard bearer, warned the voters there against the former DILG Secretary’s ineffective leadership style. VP Binay also criticized the failure of the current Aquino government to fix the transportation problems in Metro Manila.
VP Binay stressed that “the next president should be able to show that he can lead.”
He further went on to ask his Las Piñas audience if they wanted to vote for someone (referring to Roxas) to the presidency who was not able to solve the traffic and MRT problems.
He told Las Piñeros to worry of voting for a president “experienced in failures.” He pointed out that he was a former mayor and now Vice President, who had done things correctly.
Binay cites his experience as former housing and overseas Filipino workers affairs czar as part of his qualifications to run for president.
In a report by Rappler, VP Binay said, I remember that Mayor Nene Aguilar would join me while I was giving land titles here in Las Piñas. I was able to provide land titles that were just promised to some. Senator Gringo Honasan also mentioned that I am OFW affairs czar. Here in Las Piñas, I can’t even recall how many OFWs I’ve helped return to the Philippines. I made it a personal mission to help our countrymen go back home from the Middle East.
Binay also thanked the city residents who helped him beat Roxas in the 2010 elections.
Thank you, people of Las Piñas. You voted for me and I won over my opponent by over 20,000 votes. – VP Jejomar Binay (Presidential Candidate)
Binay was reported to have got more than 90,000 votes against the 70,000 votes of then-Liberal Party vice presidential bet Roxas. Las Piñas has over 304,000 voters registered for the May 2016 elections.
While Binay faces multiple corruption allegations, he says his edge over the other candidates is his 30 years of experience as a public servant and his capability to lead.
For Binay, what other candidates are just promising now, he has already achieved as former mayor of Makati and current Vice President of the Philippines.
