VICE PRESIDENT JEJOMAR BINAY
Jejomar "Jojo" Cabauatan
Binay (born November 11, 1942) is the 15th and incumbent Vice
President of the Philippines and former mayor of Makati City,
Philippines. He is also the President of the United Opposition
(UNO), President of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan
(PDP-Laban), Chairman of Asia-Pacific Region Scout Committee and the
President of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.
On February 1986, Binay
became Corazon Aquino’s first appointed local official after Nemesio
I. Yabut died during incumbency as mayor during the EDSA Revolution.
Binay joined pro-democracy
forces in thwarting the mutinies. His active role in the defense of
the Constitution earned him the nickname “Rambotito” (or little
Rambo, after the screen hero), the Outstanding Achievement Medal and
a special commendation from President Aquino herself.
In 2001, Binay was
reelected as mayor of Makati, winning over actor-TV host and then
vice mayor Edu Manzano via landslide. He won his second term in 2004
by a landslide against 1st District Councilor Oscar Ibay. He ran for
his third and last term as mayor in 2007 and won again by a
landslide, beating incumbent Senator and actor Lito Lapid. His
margin over Lapid has been considered as the largest margin in a
local election in Makati City.
Jejomar Binay was inaugurated
as the 15th Vice-President of the Philippines on June 30, 2010. He
was the first local government official who became vice president.
Binay was appointed as chairman of the Housing Urban Development
Coordinating Council (HUDCC) by the President Noynoy Aquino, the
same position held former Vice-President Noli de Castro.
Additionally, Binay was head of the Task Force OFW in which Overseas
Filipino Workers (OFWs) who were harmed by their employers can
return to the Philippines at government expense, he is also a
Presidential Adviser of OFW concerns.
