MANILA - Senator Jinggoy Estrada said he is open to become Vice President Jejomar Binay's running mate in the 2016 elections.

Asked before his bail hearing at the Sandiganbayan, Estrada said he might consider running for the vice presidency in
2016 if Binay asks him.

The senator is currently facing plunder and graft charges before the anti-graft for allegedly pocketing millions of pesos in pork barrel kickbacks.

Estrada said he is confident he will be a free man in time for the
elections.

He is still detained at Camp Crame Custodial Center but he said he still continues to discharge his duties.

The senator also noted that impeachment cases filed against President Aquino will not prosper since the administration has the numbers in Congress.
