Broadcast journalist Lynda Jumilla looks into the hot issues surrounding Cavite’s local politics on Kampaserye in “TV Patrol” this Monday (March 11) and tackles the controversial conflict between gubernatorial candidates Johnvic Remulla and Ayong Maliksi and the battle between Jolo Revilla and Jay Lacson for the vice gubernatorial position.
In Cavite, friends are becoming enemies, alliances of parties and dynasties take center stage, and even the love lives of electoral candidates are a fascinating topic of public interest.
Johnvic and Ayong used to be good friends because Ayong was also friends with Johnvic’s father, Johnny. But because of politics, their friendship has gone sour.
Both candidates are backed up by their respective parties and families who have come out in full force to ensure their victory.
Johnvic, who is running under the Nacionalista Party, has two siblings who are also running for certain positions in Cavite. He has gained the support of his running mate Jolo Revilla, the son of Sen. Bong Revilla and Rep. Lani Mercado.
Liberal Party bet Ayong, on the other hand, enjoys the backing of his son, Imus mayor Emmanuel Maliksi, his running mate Jay Lacson, the son of Sen. Panfilo Lacson, and his most powerful ally, President Noynoy Aquino.
Meanwhile, the face-off between Jolo and Jay has also become sensationalized as Jolo is rumored to be in a relationship with actress Jodi Sta. Maria, the former wife of Jay’s younger brother, Pampi.
What will be the outcome of the messy politics in Cavite?
