Caviteño powerhouse: Tolentino’s niece runs for Cavite vice governor, Remulla’s running mate
Two of Cavite’s political powerhouses have once again joined forces for the upcoming 2022 elections.
Tagaytay City Councilor Athena Tolentino on Friday filed her certificate of candidacy for provincial vice governor and will be the running mate of re-electionist Cavite Gov. Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla Jr.
Tolentino and Remulla will be running under the National Unity Party (NUP) headed by Cavite 4th district Rep. Elpidio Barzaga Jr.
Councilor Tolentino is the niece of Senator Francis Tolentino and daughter of 8th district Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.
Athena’s father who is also the current president of the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) will run as mayor of Tagaytay City while her mother, incumbent City Mayor Dr. Agnes Tolentino will exchange political posts with her husband and will run as representative of the province 8th congressional district.
The Remulla-Tolentino alliance is expected to consolidate votes from upland and lowland portions of the province.
Cavite is the second most vote-rich province in the country, with at least 2.2-million voters, next only to Cebu Province. (JCC)
