Sen. Nancy Binay says her sister, Rep. Abby Binay, won’t be running for senator in 2016

She can still change her mind.

Ellson Quismorio of Manila Bulletin reports that "Senator Nancy Binay said that her sister, Makati City 2nd district Rep. Mar-Len Abigail ’Abby’ Binay, will not be included in her father's senatorial slate in the 2016 elections."


Nancy said Abby wants to "concentrate as a mother." However, the report pointed out that "should Abby decide to run and win in 2016, this would place the two Binay sisters together in the Senate for at least three years."


When asked if incumbent Mayor Junjun Binay was being recruited for her father's senate slate, Senator Binay said her brother still "has one more term left" as Makati Mayor.
