Maria Lourdes Nancy Binay is the eldest daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay and former Makati City Mayor Dr. Elenita Binay.

Binay completed the senatorial slate of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA). She replaced Joey de Venecia, who discontinued his plan to run again for a Senate seat to pursue a business project.

She filed her certificate of candidacy last October 5, 2012.

Prior to her Senate bid, the 39-year old worked as her father’s personal assistant and as deputy secretary general of UNA.

Binay said the idea of her running for senator was the party's decision and not hers. The consideration to include her in the slate was due to her strong performance in the surveys.

As a senate contender, Binay said her program of government would focus on the housing sector.

Aside from her father, her two other siblings are also public servants. Abby Binay-Campos is a representative of Makati, and Junjun Binay is the mayor of Makati .

Binay is married to Jose Benjamin Angeles.
