REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. – Vice-President Jejomar Binay is not beating around the bush.

He has admitted that he has the intent of being the next President of the Philippines.

Binay is currently in the U.S. for various speaking engagements with the community.

At the Banyan Tree Leadership Forum in Washington D.C. yesterday Binay confirmed without qualms that he is eyeing the top post in Malacanang in 2016.

An ambition he has openly admitted to have, the day after he was elected Vice President of the Philippines.

“You know that is not a rumor because the day after the election, because of the intimidations coming from the media. Because they were asking are you going to run by 2016 and I said yes. I don’t want to be a hypocrite. I had that dream of becoming President,” said Vice President Binay.

In a recent Pulse Asia survey, Binay ranked first among the people’s picks to become the next President of the Philippines, with four of every 10 respondents saying they would vote for him.

    The earlier he declares his candidacy, the better for the people to prepare to work against him and find a better Man for the office of President of the Philippines .

    ayoko kay binay.. mabalewala ang pinaghirapan at inumpisahan ng sambayanang pilipino na papanagutin ang mga sangkot sa bilyon bilyon anomalya na nawala sa kaban ng bayan. Naniwala ako kay Pres. Noy na kung walang corrupt walang mahirap, dahil kung ang perang ito ibinigay sa mga mahihirap thru livelihood and countrywide development eh di sana wala ng mahirap sa ating bansa.
