VICE President Jejomar Binay on Monday vowed to support the “good programs” of President Benigno Aquino 3rd after the elections but warned that his party will continue to be a “constructive opposition.”
He said that whatever the outcome of the May 13 mid-term elections, he will only support the Aquino administration’s “good programs.”
“Susuportahan namin ng todo-todo ang Pangulong Noynoy sa kanyang mga programang tama (We will be supporting the good programs of President Aquino),” Binay told reporters after voting at the San Antonio National High School in Makati City.
Binay’s United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) challenged the administration-backed Team PNoy in the senatorial race, which is considered vital as this would dictate the political climate towards the 2016 presidential elections.
But the vice president, who publicly declared his interest to run for president, said his party will remain a constructive opposition.
“Iyong mga mali, kailangan kontrahin (Those who are wrong should be corrected),” he said.
He also expressed confidence that his daughter, Nancy, will win as he brushed aside criticisms against her.
Binay, who is also the President Emeritus of PDP-Laban, has opened the doors for a possible reconciliation with partymate reelectionist Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel 3rd.
Pimentel parted ways with Binay to run under Team PNoy after UNA included his arch-nemesis, former sen. Juan Miguel “Migz” Zubiri, in its senatorial ticket.
