Only DILG post for Binay, says spokesman

MANILA, Philippines – Vice-President elect Jejomar Binay only has his eye on the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) post despite talk that he is being offered a different Cabinet post.

According to his spokesman, lawyer JV Bautista, Binay wants a position where his talents will be maximized.

“He has not expressed any preference for anything else,” he said in an interview on ANC’s Headstart.

Binay, however, said he will accept any position in the Cabinet that is offered to him by President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Inquirer Editorial: Positioning Binay

VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT JEJOMAR BINAY’S LOUD insistence that he wants to serve, in effect, as the incoming Aquino administration’s chief local government officer, by asking publicly and candidly for the position of interior secretary, leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. To be sure, he has toned down his rhetoric in the last two days, but this change of tactics only shows that his previous tack was, at the very least, tactless.

Appointing people to the Cabinet is a president’s prerogative. Campaigning for a seat in it through a media blitz undermines that prerogative. In effect, it poses a challenge to President-elect Benigno Aquino III’s mandate. It raises the question: Whose Cabinet is it, anyway?

CAN you spell C-R-U-D-E? The gall of Binay and his lackeys to insist on the DILG post. The feeling of entitlement from these guys is appalling.
