Ever since Vice President Jejomar Binay was in the process of selecting his running mate for Vice President, Senator Bongbon Marcos was the most popular name that emerged from the different Binay groups. This went sour when Senator Marcos declined Binay’s invitation via live TV.
Not to the dismay of many Binay-Marcos supporters, we never know if the rumor is true that the alleged decline was just a show. In short, perharps the work of Binay’s politial advicers and strategists to gain the best of both worlds.
This speculation cannot be denied in the following circumstances:
– Marcos believes that the allegations against Binay were not anti corruption moves but an act of politics to destroy his chances in 2016
– Gringo, Binay’s running mate indirectly endorses Marcos despite being a rival in the Vice Presidential post saying: Bongbong must not be burdened by the sins of his father (If there’s any)
– Campaign materials distributed by Binay’s campaign headquarters are more on the Binay – Marcos tandem.
– Binay already announced through the media that Gringo will definitely be his Crime Czar when elected into the highest office
Should this strategy be successful, the nation will surely be on its way to healing from past pains, nation building and massive progress through their common platform in providing quality public service to all citizens of the Philippines.
