Latest News Philippines: Jolo Revilla: Vice mayor or vice governor? – Journal.com.ph:
THE promising and rising politician of Cavite province, Jolo Revilla, whose real name is Jose Lorenzo H. Bautista, son of actor/politician Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., and actress-turned-politician Lani Mercado whose birth name is Ma. Jesusa Victoria Hernandez, is said to be running this coming 2013 election either as vice governor of the province or vice mayor of Bacoor, Cavite.
Jolo, barangay captain of Panapaan VI in Bacoor City, also a board member since he was elected as the president of the League of Barangay Captains of Cavite, is reportedly being eyed by incumbent Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla as his running mate.
According to Governor Jonvic’s supporters, the personality of Jolo as one of the young breeds of politician and son of popular Senator Bong Revilla, will help boost his reelection bid this 2013 election as he will be facing his arch-rival, former Gov. Irineo “Ayong” Maliksi, now the congressman of the 3rd lone district of Imus, Cavite.
According to Revilla clan insiders, the offer is being considered by Jolo, but since Jonvic is only in his 2nd term after the 2013 election, they might turn it down since Jolo has to wait for six long years to seek the governorship of the province. Jolo, the same insiders said, may also opt to face Jonvic in the 2016 gubernatorial election.
The Revilla clan, his supporters added, may also decide to let Jolo run as vice mayor of his uncle, incumbent Bacoor City Mayor Ramon Joseph Magsaysay Bautista, popularly known as Mayor Strike Revilla, whose term runs until 2016.
“Mag-aantay na lang si Jolo ng three years at pagkatapos ng kanyang uncle ay kakandidatong mayor at tiyak ang panalo nito,” the Revilla supporters said.
Politicians think it would be a wise decision since Congresswoman Lani is also seeking re-election in the 2nd district of Bacoor. “Kung baga sa pangangampanya nila ay iisa na lang lugar, ’di tulad kung vice governor na buong lalawigan ay iikutin ito ni Jolo at ng mga Revilla.”
