Abby Binay to bring back father’s legacy to Makati

MANILA, Philippines – It's a whirlwind of emotions for Makati Second District Representative Abigail Binay as she launches her mayoral bid on Monday, March 28. 

She grins from ear to ear as she dances onstage before her devoted supporters, but sheds tears as she dedicates a song to her father, former Makati mayor and now Vice President Jejomar Binay.

The city of Makati is known for many things: It is the country’s premiere business district and it is the stronghold of the Binay family.
