Apparently, they were already conflicts between them. Politicians in Makati already took which side they chose.
Based on the article published in Pang-Masa, Mayor Abby Binay revealed why Monsour del Rosario and Rico J. Puno switched side.
According to the Mayor, she and Monsour already had a conflict of interest early this year.
“Monsour and I had a falling out early this year. Dati pa. I felt that he wasn’t working. He was really more focused on his Taekwondo, ‘yung Olympics, whatever. Na parang hindi siya nararamdaman sa district, so nagkaroon kami ng desisyon na maghiwalay,” the daughter of Jejomar Binay said.
She added that for 2 years Monsour has not done anything and that people of Makati can barely feel his presence.
When asked about Rico J. Puno’s decision to transfer to Junjun Binay’s side, Abby Binay said this: “Si Rico J. naman, unfortunately, he has been very very sick and he has decided to go with the 13 other councilors who left me. Pero kasi si Rico J, he was supposed to run under my ticket for Councilor. Ako, ang sinasabi ko parati, “Rico, magpagaling ka” kasi grabe ang abuso sa katawan,”
The Makati City Mayor also said that Rico was rushed to Emergency Room more than 4 times, based on the article.
“I don’t know how he can still campaign. I wish him the best. I’m hopeful that he prioritizes his health more than anything else. Kasi ‘yung trabaho, anhin mo ‘yung trabaho kung hindi ka makapagtrabaho,” she said.
