The message of Christmas is peace and Vice President Jejomar Binay has called  on political parties and candidates to declare a ceasefire on dirty politics during the Yuletide season.

Binay’s Christmas wish: If the New People’s Army (NPA) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) have declared a SOMO (Suspension Of Military Operations), politicians should also declare their own ‘SOMO’ or Suspension Of Mudslinging Operations.

Binay said politicians during the Christmas holiday, should stop the mudslinging and personal attacks and  instead shake hands, embrace one another and pray together.

He noted that even armed communist rebels and  the military have separately declared a SOMO  during the holidays.

I hope that in politics there will be ceasefire too. Peace should prevail, Binay said in an interview with Bombo Radyo in General Santos City.

Binay, who is running for President under the banner of the opposition United Nationalist Alliance in the 2016 election, said his appeal is addressed to all national and local leaders.
