Governor Jonvic Remulla on Friday refuted allegations that he is neutral in the 2022 national elections, insisting that he is simply doing the ideal approach to show decency to all political candidates.

Remulla’s statement came after a photo of him with Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Kiko Pangilinan, who are vying for the country’s top two seats in next year’s polls, went viral on social media.

Netizens questioned whether Remulla is endorsing the Leni-Kiko tandem, or if he is simply remaining impartial for the upcoming elections.

Remulla said: “There’s also a stark contrast between being neutral vs. being respectful and accommodating to all those knocking at our doors. There is no weakness in civility.”

Moreover, the governor explained that regardless of their political differences, he treated Robredo with respect as a gentleman and father of Cavite.

“Yet I received the Vice President with the dignity and professionalism she deserves not just as the incumbent second highest Official of the Republic but also out of respect to her as a woman, leader and mother,” he mentioned.

Furthermore, he noted that “everyone is free to choose their own preferred candidates” with no one influencing and stopping them. 

Remulla is running for reelection under the National Unity Party (NUP), the political party that supports the presidential and vice presidential candidacies of Senators Ping Lacson and Tito Sotto, respectively.
