Duterte: Not Keen on Prosecuting Aquino or Binay

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
President to be Rodrigo Duterte is not up to prosecuting political offenders most especially outgoing President Pnoy or Benigno Aquino III and Vice President “Jojo” or Jejomar Binay.

If there are wrongdoings in that area, it’s the job of the Ombudsman; he said. He has adapted Binay’s aspiration to be
a healing president and he won’t be vindictive.

Election dramas must be forgotten and he would like to reach out to the hands of his opponents as a sign of friendship and unity; he added.

Binay will remain a Force in Philippine Politics

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay’s presidential defeat seemed to be minor for him to even get bothered. The fundamental thing is his family’s recovering Makati City Hall that indicates the Binays’ strong political force in the Philippines, said ex-Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr.

Jojo Binay’s daughter, former Makati Rep. Abigail Binay, is now the new mayor of Makati. Her husband, Luis Campos, replaces her as Makati district II’s Representative. Nancy Binay, the eldest daughter, will be serving three more years as senator.

Pimentel seems to be fearing that another national conquest by the Binays is now cooking for the next election, six years from now. This is probably why Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales don’t want to let go of the older Binay’s alleged corruption case. The question is; will incoming President Rodrigo Duterte supports the Ombudsman or Binay instead – who is a close friend and an ally?

Conchita Awaits End of Binay’s Immunity for Alleged Corruption Case

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Vice President Jejomar Binay loses his immunity on June 30, 2016 after his tenure as Vice President comes to an end. Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales saw a window of opportunity as per her discussion with journalists last May 19, 2016. She said that the outgoing Vice President can expect at least one case to be filed against him in connection with the P2.8-billion Makati city hall parking project when Binay was still a mayor.

Binay denied all accusations and quite confident that the Ombudsman will go nowhere with her intention – just like the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee.

However, this is quite an interesting development to follow. Will Conchita ends up to be a big liar – or will Binay be in trouble?

Duterte will not push nor withdraw Scarborough Shoal Claim

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The Philippines has been asking the Chinese government to allow Filipinos to continue fishing in the Chinese-restricted waters as an indication that they are interested for peaceful solutions as far as territorial disputes are concerned. This is probably why there are no more complaints that reach the media for the time being from the previously harrassed fishermen.

It is also another consideration that China is observing the incoming administration’s stint on the issue headed by President Rodrigo Duterte – a known punisher.

Duterte intends to repair the damaged relationship between China and the Philippines due to these territorial disputes in the South China Sea so, he will not withdraw nor push such claims including ownership of Scarborough Shoal.

Jojo is Happy: Presidential Defeat not Binay’s Loss but the People’s

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Supporters of outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay were close to tears when they visited him recently at the Office of the Vice President in Coconut Palace – but the good aura and energy of this admirable man were contagious – thus setting the mood of the group into “fun”. It was indeed a fun tour of the palace as seen in the featured image.

V.P. Binay fought fair and square during the May 9, 2016 national election but when the people decided, he urged everyone to support presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte who has been his friend for years and an ally to unseat the Liberal Party in the top position.

Yes, the presidential defeat for Binay might mean happy and quality time with the family – but it’s his constituents’ sorrow now that his national projects are under the brim with the new administration. Here’s hoping that President Duterte will continue the good deeds of past people in power – and fix only the things that need fixing. May quality and affordable education, healthcare and housing be few of the top priorities of Duterte same as Binay.
