It does not have to be election time to help out. Jejomar Binay, Bongbong Marcos tried to confirm their alliance during the May 10, 2016 election. It failed because of separate directions of their parties. However, they continue the merger to help out.
[VIDEO]: See how Binay, Marcos and Gringo joined hands during elections that continues to this date despite not being in power.
Good Choices for Vice Presidents
Binay had named three choices for his vice president – Marcos, United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) vice president Senator Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan, and a third choice he refused to name during the recently concluded national election last May 10, 2016.

Not the Official Tandem but the Alliance Remains
Sen. Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan II said he has no ill feelings against some local groups backing the tandem of Binay and Sen. Marcos. In fact, he endorsed it.
Then Senator Honasan received praise that he was such a good sport endorsing a rival, Bongbong Marcos. It’s because he believes in Marcos’s capability to lead the country soon. He was also happy to help Binay promote the candidacy of Marcos as his stepping stone to the presidency.
