Just when the politics has already heated up, the two Binay siblings running for Makati mayoral position was seen quarreling with one another inside a church, intensifying the feuds of the local elections.

Former Makati Mayor Junjun Binay in Saturday lost his cool when his sister, incumbent Abigail “Abby” Binay, appeared to question the way he ran his campaign.

The incident happened during an election forum organized by the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) at San Ildefonso Parish.

The video who had been shared for more than 8000 times, shows Makati mayor Abby Binay seating with his brother, seemingly the two were shouting as seen afar. Soon the fiasco went out of hand: the male began to walk away, and had mocked her sister by kneeling as if sarcastically hailing her the more powerful.

Makati Police chief Pablo Simon went to the two and tried to calm them down.

Their father, former vice-president Jejomar Binay, who was seated at the farthest end of the platform, stood up and also had stepped in. 

The two Binays haven't talked to one another since Junjun decided to go up against her for the mayoral seat.

Five of the six Makati mayoral candidates were present in the forum: the Binay sibilings, Rene Bondal, Wilfredo Talag, and Ricky Yabut.
