Binay admits giving t-shirts to typhoon victims, denies early campaigning

Vice President Jejomar Binay was accused of early campaigning when he went to Cagayan and Isabela last Monday instead of delivering his speech to answer allegations on overpriced Makati City building 2 and other corruption issues.

Binay went to the Northern part of Luzon to personally know the situation after being hit by typhoon. He also brought relief goods and t-shirts.

In a media interview, Binay said there is nothing wrong with what he did. The victims were hit by signal number 3 typhoon and the government must be there to show care, he added.

He added that he does not conform with charter change except for economic charter change. The question for political charter change arouse after President Aquino said, while in Europe, there is still time for charter change to amend presidential term provision.

The Vice President is set to deliver his address today at 2 pm. “Vice President Jejomar C. Binay will reply to the issues raised in the Senate sub-committee hearings at Meeting Room 5, 2nd floor, PICC, CCP Complex, Pasay,” his office announced.
