Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla believes it’s Bongbong Marcos’ “destiny” to win the presidency.
Remulla said he understands why people were furious with his prediction in a Facebook post, but he’ll stick with it no matter what.
“Maraming letga sa huling post ko kung saan sinulat ko na mananalo si BBM sa Cavite.” he wrote.
“Maraming letga sa aking pananaw na ginuhit ng tadhana na maging Pangulo si BBM.
“Maraming letga sa aking impresyon na panahon na ni BBM bilang susunod na lider ng bansa.” he added.
Voters shouldn’t expect an apology from Remulla.
“To all those who reacted (special mention to the first-time visitors of the page who dropped by just to make their feelings known), let me make one thing clear: I am owning up to my words. I will never apologize to anyone for what I wrote or what I believe is the most likely outcome.”
“Bilang isang pinuno, mabuting marinig at malaman ko lahat ng panig sa diskursong pulitika.”
“I welcome hearing all sides – even with the extreme emotions and expletives.
“It only proves one thing: We all care about our country.”
“Sa galit at gayak pa lang ay nakikita ko na marami pa rin ang nagmamahal sa bansa,” he continued.
Despite the hateful comments, Remulla thanked everyone who gave feedback.
“To everyone, thank you very much for the feedback. It gives me a great sense of hope that our love for the country remains steadfast and the virtues we want in our leaders are precise and clear.”
“Let the final arbiter be the people.”
He urged voters to choose their leaders “wisely.”
“Every vote counts. For every vote is a win for our democracy. It’s a win for our future.”
Remulla previously deleted his presidential poll on Twitter after the majority of users preferred VP Leni Robredo.
He did a new poll on Facebook that resulted in Marcos coming out on top.
In the 2016 elections, Remulla predicted that former vice president Jejomar Binay would win the presidency.
