MANILA—Former Makati Mayor Junjun Binay on Saturday lost his cool when his sister, incumbent Abigail Binay, appeared to take a verbal swipe at him during a debate at San Ildefonso Parish.
Junjun could be seen talking heatedly to Abigail and another person, and later on kneeling in front of Abigail as their father, former Vice-President Jejomar Binay, intervened.
Abigail said she relies on her performance to win the mayoralty again.

In a previous interview, Abigail said she had not spoken to Junjun for months after he decided to contest the mayoral seat in next month’s local elections.
Five of six Makati mayoral candidates were present in the forum organized by the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting: the Binay sibilings, Rene Bondal, Wilfredo Talag, and Ricky Yabut.
