First to prepare, first to win – Erap, Binay

Rappler.com
Binay and Erap say it's too early to talk politics. But their alliance and election maneuvering seem to show otherwise.

MANILA, Philippines – For Vice President Jejomar Binay and former President Joseph Estrada, first to prepare is first to win.

While the two admit that elections are still far away, Binay and Estrada make no secret of their ambitions and plans for the 2013 and 2016 polls.

Binay is running for president in 2016 while Estrada still seeks to play an active role in fielding candidates, and maybe even run for Manila mayor.

Their newly formed coalition, the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), gets an early boost from survey results and its newest member, world boxing champion, Sarangani Rep Manny Pacquiao.
