Makati City Mayor Jejomar “Jojo” Binay yesterday announced his plans to join the 2010 presidential race.Comparing himself to US President-elect Barack Obama, Binay boldly announced his intentions before a crowd celebrating his 66th birthday at the Makati City Hall yesterday.

Binay vowed to lead a voters’ revolution and save the Philippines, which he branded an “orphan country,” from a “step-President.”Binay said the voters’ revolution will install a government that will restore “the people’s dignity, give priority to health care and education, look after the elderly, and promote transparency and accountability in government.”
