‘Lucky’ Rep. Abigail Binay-Campos wins condo unit; netizens in uproar
MANILA, Philippines – It seems like another lucky day for Makati City Representative Mar-Len Abigail Binay-Campos when she won a condominium unit in the Christmas raffle of a high-end mall.
According to the Facebook page of Rockwell Power Plant Mall in Makati, the lawmaker supposedly won a studio unit of “The Grove,” a posh residential condominium by Rockwell Land Corp. in Pasig City.
In the summary list of representatives’ statements of assets and liabilities net worth, Rep. Binay has a net worth of P41.2 million in 2012.
INQUIRER.net is still contacting the marketing department of Power Plant. But a staff of the administrator office confirmed the results of the raffle.
Netizens reacted against Binay for winning.
“As if they still need additional assets to their burgeoning wealth,” Mel Banico commented on the Facebook page.
“I guess they knew who she was,” added Jic Cruz.
“Sila na nga may-ari ng Makati, baka nga insulto pa sa kanila ‘yan na bibigyan niyo sila ng studio unit,” said Marlo Oledan.
INQUIRER.net is still getting comment from the representative who is also the daughter of vice president Jejomar Binay.
