Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla apologized for talking about the 2022 presidential elections amid the country’s fight with the renewed surge in COVID-19 infections.
In a Facebook post, the Politiko said talking about next elections in the middle of a pandemic were both premature and in bad taste
“I want all of you to know that I only have the sincerest intentions in mind and I am very sorry for the bad timing,” he said.
“Rest assured that I understand all of your concerns. Moving on, the topics you will hear from me will be more about how to help the people survive (vaccine efforts) and how to recover all the lost opportunities (such as livelihood programs). Action over words.”
Remulla earlier said he would seek the opinion of his constituents on who to support in the coming 2022 polls as he bared that several “middlemen” have already asked for a meeting with him to get his support.
The outspoken governor has been rumored to run for a national post next year. But he has since denied having intentions to run for a national post, saying that he would seek reelection as Cavite governor.
