Lacson son to square off with Bong Revilla’s son for Cavite vice governor


IMUS CITY, Cavite, Philippines—The ruling Liberal Party (LP) is fielding the son of Senator Panfilo Lacson for vice governor of Cavite in the May 2013 elections to square off with the son of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla.

Jay Lacson, 38, was proclaimed Monday as the running mate of incumbent Imus Rep. Erineo “Ayong” Maliksi, who wants to make a comeback as governor of Cavite.

Maliksi served as governor for three terms from 2001 to 2009 before he ran and won the lone congressional district seat for Imus.

Both Maliksi and Senator Lacson are from this city.

“I guess public service runs in the blood.  I’d like to serve my province mates,” the younger Lacson said on the sidelines of the LP proclamation rally held at the Maranatha Christian School here Monday.

Lacson is seeking his first public office, after working as his father’s chief of staff. He said his father was not able to make to the proclamation rally because he was out of the country.

In his speech, Maliksi stressed several times that Lacson might not be an actor but could certainly perform well in the government.

“Hindi artista, pero propesyunal. Hindi artista pero buhat sa magaling na angkan, napakagaling ng magulang, matulungin, ikinararangal ng Cavite, (He is not an actor but he is a professional. He is not an actor but he comes from a talented clan, very smart parent, helpful and someone that Cavite can be proud of),” Maliksi said.

Maliksi is up against reelectionist Gov. Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla, while Lacson will be running against movie and television actor Jolo Revilla, son of actor-turned-politician Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.

“It was the party that talked me (into running for office, but) I believe Congressman Ayong (Maliksi) talked to my father first,” Lacson said.

    It’s one thing to say it’s time to stop voting actors into office. It’s another to tout a candidate simply because he’s NOT an actor. If he’s not an actor, what is he?

    A sure “Lose-Lose” situation for Cavite.

  • kunsabagay

    Hay naku eto na naman tayo. Mga kamag anak ng pulitiko, parang sila lang ang pinanganak na may karapatang mamuno.

    Sen Bong Revilla at Sen Lacson,kung talagang may malasakit kayo sa bayan, kayo na mismo ang pumigil sa mag anak nyo

    . Bigyan nyo nag pagkakataon ung iba na talagang may malasakit sa bayan ang   mamuno. Kaso sa laki siguro ng kinikita nyo sa pwesto ay unahin nyo muna pansariling kapakanan kesa ang bayan no. Sorry na lang ang sambayanan, ganun ba un?

    • pedronimo

       Mas malaswa ang mga Revila. Mula sa Lolong bababera’t sabungero, anak Bong Halili Revilla, asawang Lani, apu na Jolo. Lahat iyan tumatakbo sa politika. Yung isa, si Ramona, tumakbo naman sa Hustisya, at tumakbo sa labas ng bayan. Mananakobo lahat iyan sa reponsibilidad kasi wala naman abilidad, Maraming bobotante na boboto sa mga Revilla.


    KANYA-KANYA ng kaharian sa bayan.  Sa Luzon, Visayas, at Mindanao…..panagparte-partehan na ng mga pamilya at kamag-anakan ang bansa ng kanya-kanya ng kaharian…kompleto hanggang sa mga tagapagmana ng setro’t korona.  Yon na din ng yon ang mga pangalang maririnig sa buong bansa….Singsons, Marcoses, Angaras, Revillas, Belmontes, Gatchalians, Arroyos, Dys, Osmenas, Garcias, Ampatuans, Dutertes, Remullas, Villafuertes, Abads, at naaaaapakarami pang iba. Ano nga kaya ang nararapat na gawin para mabuwag ang ganitong practice sa bayan…na mabigyan naman ang iba pa para ipamalas ang kanilang kakayahan?

    • maypakialamtayo

      hanggat may bobong botante, mananatili yan! hindi naman mamamayagpag ang mga yan kundi sila iboboto.

  • JosephNess

    let the people choose from no other choices…that’s the way our politics play, no choice to choose, nevertheless…choose!

  • JK1000

    Ginagawang “family business” ang politics natin, kung hindi na puede si Mayor…Ang wife naman ang tatakbo, kung ayaw ni Mommy, si Kuya ang tatakbo. HINDI MARUNONG MAHIYA !

    Mga kabitenyo, basahin muna ninyo ang credentials
    (profiles) nina Lacson at Revilla bago kayo bumoto.

    • pedronimo

       Tatay, Nanay, Anak politiko. Susmariosep, sobrang ganid naman ang mga Revilla sa kapangyarihan kaya tuloy yung si Ramona naging ganid na rin sa pera at tinakasan ang husticia sa tulong ni Bong Revilla.

  • hustlergalore

    WALA NA BANG ibang pagpipilian?

  • hustlergalore

  • pedronimo

    Wala na bang ibang matinong political leader sa Cavite? Nakaka-insulto sa mga botante ng Cavite na Revilla na naman ang kakadidato? Marami yatang bobotante boboto sa mga Revilla.
