Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla immediately answered Mocha Uson’s allegations that he defends only his allies when attacked about their past.
In a Twitter post earlier, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) deputy administrator Margaux “Mocha” Uson lamented the fact that Gov. Remulla never defended her when she was being attacked about her past.
Mocha Uson, idinaing ang di pagdepensa ni Gov. Jonvic Remulla noong siya’y binatikos dahil sa kanyang nakaraan
In a post on Twitter, Mocha said that Gov. Remulla should defend everyone’s past, not only that of his allies.
She also called the governor out for allegedly employing a double standard when confronted by such things.

“Sana Gov @jonvicremulla ganyan kayo sa lahat hindi lang sa kaalyado sa pulitika. Nasaan ka nuong binabatikos ang nakaraan ko? #DoubleStandard,” Mocha wrote in her tweet.
Earlier, the Cavite governor defended Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso after past photos of him in scanty clothing appeared on the Internet.
This was after President Rodrigo Roa Duterte blasted a mayor in the NCR area for aspiring to become president even though his past included posing scantily dressed and looking at his member.
In a reply to Mocha’s tweet, Gov. Remulla said that he’s not familiar with her past, only that she’s very influential with top government officials.
“Ma’m sadly hindi po ako familiar sa nakaraan mo. Ang narinig ko lang ay very influential ka pa nga sa Palasyo. Pasensya na po at huli ako sa balita tungkol sa iyo. I wish you all the best,” Gov. Remulla wrote in his reply to Mocha’s post.
Juanito Victor Catibayan Remulla Jr., better known as Jonvic Remulla or Gov. Jonvic, is a Pinoy politician who currently sits as Cavite’s governor. He was born on October 24, 1967 to former Governor Juanito Remulla Sr. and Ditas Catibayan in Manila, Philippines. Jonvic also served as the vice governor and as a Cavite Provincial Board member before running for the top post of the province. He is the brother of politician Jesus Crispin Remulla and TV-journo-turned-politician Gilbert Remulla.
It was not always that fine and well with Gov. Jonvic and Mayor Isko. In April of this year, the governor engaged in a word war with Mayor Isko because of the non-distribution of aid to Manila residents who transferred to the municipality of Naic in Cavite. The Manila Mayor singled out the local chief executive of Naic, Mayor Jun Dualan, which didn’t sit well with Gov. Jonvic as Naic is under his jurisdiction. After that public spat, however, Mayor Isko and Gov. Jonvic must have patched things on their own. The governor even urged the public to move on because he and Mayor Isko doesn’t have any personal quarrel.
The governor also does not mince words even when in the company of top government officials. Last year, during a virtual conference where he and Presidential Spox Harry Roque were together, the governor poked fun at the “fake hair” of Roque. He also said that the Spox looked like Gov. Jonvic’s brother, Congressman Jesus Crispin Remulla.
