Binay gets TRO: Liberals sat in mayoral post for only an hour

What former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo failed to do, this administration did in just a matter of months. Mayor Jun-Jun Binay was given his 6-months suspension order from the Ombudsman. Vice mayor Kit Pena, a Liberal party member, assumed the post but only for an hour because Mayor Jun-Jun fortunately got a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) for sixty days.

Seems like the Roxas camp want to practically debilitate Binay by first depriving him of financiers and second, temporarily paralysing his source or core of his political influence and power. We all know that the only way you can defeat Binay is for him to be deprived of funds. If Binay is financially crippled and prevented from initiating a decent campaign, then, Mar's chances of winning the 2016 polls is better.

Mar, according to sources, is really desperate and desirous to get the plum post come 2016. He thinks that by then, Binay has been weakened considerably that, according to the indefatigable Senator Antonio Trillianes, Binay may find it extremely hard to put up a good fight.

For a presidential candidate who wants to win the presidency, he needs at least 200 million pesos.
