Eleksyon 2013


  • JV Ejercito

    The son of former President Joseph Estrada and current San Juan mayor Guia Gomez, Joseph Victor "JV" Ejercito believes that political-family dynasties can be "good" for the country. Like his father, he has had some practice before his senatorial bid, having served as mayor of San Juan – his family's bailiwick – from 2001 to 2010.

    He is currently representing the city's lone district in the House, where he filed the lower chamber's version of the Kasambahay bill. Ejercito is espousing a pro-education and worker's protection platform.
