PNoy: No bad blood with Binay

By Joyce Pangco Panares | Feb. 15, 2013 at 12:01am
President Benigno Aquino III took a shot at the United Nationalist Alliance, saying that “all political colors and all political directions” were already in their slate.

But the president held back from confronting head-on Vice President Jejomar Binay’s claim that the country’s strong economic growth has yet to be felt by ordinary Filipinos.

“In fairness to the Vice President, I have not heard him say it so I assume he did not say it,” the President said.

But Aquino said it was understandable for the UNA to attack his administration’s accomplishments.

“They have to weaken our accomplishments so they can say that they will improve on these if they are elected,” he said.

The President added that there was no bad blood between him and Binay, and that the latter has been performing well as a member of the Cabinet.

“So long as the Vice President is doing his job - on housing and on our overseas Filipino workers - I have no problem with him. And in fairness to him, he has done a good job so why should I be complaining?” he said.

Binay, however, said the May elections were not a fight between groups and parties, but a fight against unemployment, hunger and poverty.

“Ang darating na eleksyon ay hindi laban ng isang grupo laban sa isang grupo, hindi laban ng isang partido kontra sa isang partido. Hindi natin kalaban ang isat-isa,” (The coming elections are not about the fight between political groups, or a party against another party.  We are not fighting each other), Binay said during the UNA grand proclamation rally of at the Plaza Independencia in Cebu City.

He said that the fight should be against unemployment, hunger and poverty.  “Those are the enemies that we need to defeat,” he said.
