He used to make waves in the wakeboarding scene in Camarines Sur, but after emerging victorious in the gubernatorial race in the province, 23-year-old Luis Miguel “Migz” Villafuerte will soon start making waves in Philippine politics.

When he takes his oath of office, Migz will become the youngest governor in Philippine history after he easily beat his grandfather, Luis Villafuerte Sr. for the post. He will be replacing his father, outgoing Gov. Luis Raymond “LRay” Villafuerte.

However, Migz was the only lucky Villafuerte in the May 13 elections. His grandmother, Nelly, lost to lawyer Leni Robredo, widow of former Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, for the third district congressional seat. His father failed to win the second district congressional seat after losing to incumbent Rep. Diosdado “Dato” Arroyo.

Despite his age, Migz has already earned a Political Science degree from the University of San Diego.

Meanwhile, Jolo Revilla, 24, an actor and comedian, will become the youngest vice governor in Philippine history, taking the distinction from former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., who became vice governor of Tarlac when he was 27 years old.

Jolo is the son of Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla and Rep. Lani Mercado.

Jolo began his foray in politics in 2010 when he ran as Barangay Captain in Barangay Panapaan VII in Bacoor, Cavite. He then became President of the Association of Barangay Captains in Cavite.

This year, he beat the son of Sen. Panfilio Lacson, Ronald Jay Lacson, for the vice gubernatorial post in Cavite.
