TANZA, Cavite – Reelected Governor Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla Jr. was formally sworn in for his second term as provincial chief executive of Cavite Monday, June 27, 2022, at the historic Santa Cruz church in Poblacion, Tanza.
Remulla was sworn in before Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and witnessed by his mother Ditas Remulla, wife Dr. Agnes Tirona Remulla, and children in simple rites.
