Remullas regain hold of Cavite

TRECE MARTIRES CITY?Former Vice Gov. Juanito Victor ?Jonvic? Remulla was proclaimed governor-elect, signaling a return of his family?a political heavyweight in Cavite?to the capitol after his father?s 14-year reign in the ?80s.

Remulla, the second youngest son of long-time Gov. Juanito Remulla, ran under the Nacionalista Party (NP) and garnered 467,323 votes. His closest rival, Dencito ?Osboy? Campaa, of the Liberal Party (LP), got 419,134.

Serving as three-term vice governor, the governor-elect had earlier filed graft charges against incumbent Gov. Erineo ?Ayong? Maliksi, prompting the latter?s brief suspension from office.

In 2007, Remulla made a startling declaration not to run against Maliksi.

Another Remulla son, Jesus Crispin or ?Boying,? won as congressman in the seventh district, covering the towns of Alfonso, General Aguinaldo, Indang, Maragondon, Mendez, Naic, Tagaytay and Ternate. He had served as congressman of the third district before the redistricting of Cavite.

Maliksi, who is ending his third and final term as governor, ran this time for congressman of the newly-created lone district of Imus, and won.

His son, Manny, however, lost in his reelection bid as Imus mayor to Homer Saquilayan of the NP. In an earlier interview, he attributed his loss to discrepancies in the ballots used in May 10 polls.

Another political family, the Revillas, kept its stronghold of the highly populated municipality of Bacoor.

Actress Lani Mercado, wife of Sen. Ramon ?Bong? Revilla Jr., was proclaimed congressman-elect, getting 89,365 votes compared to her rival Plaridel Abaya?s 55,088.

The senator?s brother, Strike Revilla, was reelected mayor of Bacoor. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon
