MANILA (Mabuhay) — Instead of wishing for the possible withdrawal of Vice President Jejomar Binay from the 2016 race, Senator Nancy Binay said Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and other would-be candidates should just show what they can do for the country.

“Nakalulungkot kasi imbes na ipagdasal niya ‘yung mga kababayan natin na nangangailangan para mapabuti ‘yung buhay nila, I think pinagdadasal niya na ‘Lord, please, huwag nang tumakbo si Vice para may pag-asa ako’,” Binay told reporters Monday afternoon.

Earlier, Trillanes said he believes the Vice President might withdraw from the 2016 race because of allegations of corruption and the latter’s declining survey ratings.

“Naniniwala ako na di na tatakbo si Vice President Binay. Aatras na siya ngayong nararamdaman niyang gumuguho na ang mundo niya,” said Trillanes, one of VP Binay’s vocal critics.

But Sen. Binay said there could be other people behind Trillanes who are wishing that they would win by default. Trillanes earlier expressed readiness to run for a higher post in 2016.

“Kailangan by default para manalo sila? Bakit, ‘di ba? Magpakitaan kayo kung ano ang nagawa ninyo at kaya ninyong gawin. Hindi ‘yung mananalo ka kasi ‘yung kalaban mo e kung baka e tinechnical mo at hindi dahil dun sa pinakita mo kung ano ‘yung kakayahan mo. Di ba siya na rin nagsabing gusto niyang tumakbo? Nung una president tapos ngayon vice president,” she said.

She then cited Oplan Nognog, the supposed operation to diminish Vice President Binay’s chances of winning in the 2016 polls.

“Basta balikan natin ‘yung Oplan Nognog. ‘Di ba, Oplan Stop Nognog nga ‘yung operation nila. Makikita ninyo same names. ‘Yon ewan ko, siguro dun na lang nila nakikita ‘yung pag-asa nila para paatrasin ‘yung ating Vice President. Nagtataka rin ako bakit paulit-ulit ang sinasabi ni Senator Trillanes na aatras, parang kung baga sa Wish Ko Lang ‘yun ata ang wish niya,” she said. (MNS)
