LUCENA CITY--Vice President Jejomar Binay criticized the administration's senatorial ticket for public pronouncements that all its candidates will win in the elections and for allegedly attacking his daughter.

In a speech during the campaign rally of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)  in Lucena City on Friday, Binay hit Team PNoy for claiming that it can achieve a 12-0 victory in the polls.

"Wow, mukhang magkakadayaan," Binay said. "Suntok sa buwan 'yon."

Binay said a 12-0 victory  has never been achieved by any political party in the country.

He also defended his daughter, senatorial candidate Nancy Binay, against criticisms that she is unfit and inexperienced to be senator.

While introducing her on stage, Vice President Binay told the audience, "Kawawa naman ang anak ko. Ang pagkatao, sinisira."

Binay said his daughter graduated from the University of the Philippines, and has been working for him from the time he was a practicing lawyer until he became the country's second highest official.

"Ano ho ang sasabihing walang karanasan?" Binay said. "Talagang tatak yata ng kabilang partido ang manira."

On Friday, UNA claimed three of its senatorial candidates--Binay, Jack Enrile, and JV Ejercito--are now subjects of a demolition job by the Liberal Party's "special media operations group."

The party said the purpose is to dislodge them from their high ranking in surveys.

Vice President Binay, however, is skeptical of surveys.

He said he finds it hard to believe that some of UNA's candidates are ranking poorly despite their qualifications.

In the latest Pulse Asia survey, three UNA bets did not make it to the so-called Magic 12: Rep. Mitos Magsaysay, former Senator Ernesto Maceda, and Tingting Cojuangco.

"Huwag ho kayo magpapapaniwala," he told the crowd.

Binay also dared survey firms to be transparent.

"Tell the people 'yong methodology ninyo. Sabihin ninyo kung sino ang nagbabayad sa survey," he said.
