- Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla said it’s better to seek the opinion of his constituents on who to vote in the upcoming elections
- Remulla admitted “middle men” are seeking his support but he rejected meeting them because he wants to know their plans first
- The governor seeks to unite “22 million strong” Cavite voters for a more impactful change in the country
Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla revealed that there are already several “middle men” of those planning to run as president in the 2022 elections are seeking his support.
In a Facebook post, Remulla shared how these “middle men” are reaching out to him for the support of the vote-rich province of Cavite.
“Marami na ang mga namamagitan para sa mga may ambisyong tumakbo bilang pangulo. Gustong humarap sa akin, makipag-usap at kumuha ng suporta para sa darating na halalan,” Remulla disclosed.
According to Remulla, he rejected those “middle men” not because he doesn’t know them but because he wants to learn more about what they can offer to the country.
“So far, wala po akong interes makipagkita kahit kanino. Ito ay hindi dahil sa ayaw ko sa kanila. Gusto ko lang kasi muna malaman kung ano ba ang plano nila para isaayos ang ating bansa,” the governor said.
Remulla lamented how these politicians often start with good intentions but end up falling short to deliver their promises to the people.
“Time and again we have been disappointed by what always start as good intentions. Yet, what we always get is one’s inability to follow through and deliver. Anyone in position will always fall short of the people’s very high expectations,” he added.
Remulla clarified that it is best to seek the advice of his constituents before committing to anyone.
“Sure, this will be a long process of consultation and dialogue. But you see, this cannot be my decision alone. I’d rather we do this together as one massive collective force of 2.2 million strong registered voters—so we can shape the conversation and contribute as a whole to the country,” said Remulla.
