the first local government official to become Vice President.
In February 1986, Binay became Corazon Aquino's first appointed local official. His
active role in the defence of the Constitution earned him the nickname "Rambotito"
(or little Rambo, after the screen hero). In 2001, Binay was re-elected as mayor
of Makati and won his second term in 2004 and a third term in 2007.
Binay was inaugurated as the Vice-President of the Philippines on 30 June 2010.
