Dr Elenita Binay (born Elenita Sombillo) is the former mayor of Makati City serving
from 1998 to 2001 and the current Second Lady of the Philippines for being the wife
of Vice President Jejomar Binay.
Mrs. Binay, though employed as a medical practitioner, ran and won as Mayor of Makati
after her husband vacated the post. Her term, though, was marred by controversy.
Mrs. Binay, along with her husband, Jejomar, is facing corruption charges arising
from the so-called "Rockwell Bridge scandal".
