Binay seeks INC endorsement

Vice President and UNA Presidential candidate Jejomar Binay has sought the endorsement of religious sect Iglesia ni Cristo.

In a report by INC-owned network Net 25, Vice President Binay was said to have met with INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo last Thursday, April 21.

The courtesy call was Binay’s opportunity to ask for the support of the influential sect for this presidential bid in the May 2016 elections.

“Humingi po ako ng tulong. Dumudulog po ako rito na sana ay masuportahan ako ng kapatiran,” said the Vice President.

Binay was received by Manalo at the Central Office’s “Bulwagan,” the same venue where Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas and his wife Korina Sanchez were earlier accommodated.

According to Binay’s campaign spokesman Joey Salgado, Binay was able to present his vision for the country and discuss plans and programs of his government once elected.

“The Vice President is humbled by the opportunity extended by INC executive minister Ka Eduardo Manalo to discuss his programs to lift the poor from poverty and build a compassionate, caring, and competent government,” said Salgado.

Prior to Binay and Roxas, presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe also went to the INC Central office and met with INC’s political affairs chief Eraño Codera.
