Miguel Luis "Migz" Reyes Villafuerte (born 21 January 1989) is a Filipino politician and model, who has been Governor of Camarines Sur since 2013.

He is from the Villafuerte clan; his grandfather, Luis Villafuerte, was a congressman from 2004 to 2013 and former governor of the same province from 1988 to 1992 and from 1995 to 2004. His father is Luis Raymund F. Villafuerte, Jr., who served as a governor from 2004 to 2013, while his paternal grandmother, Nelly Favis Villafuerte, is a former member of the Monetary Board.

Political life

He was elected Governor of Camarines Sur in 2013, defeating his grandfather Luis. At the age of 24, he is the youngest elected governor in Philippine history, surpassing Mark Lapid. Along with Jolo Revilla (then Vice-Governor of Cavite), Villafuerte is among the youngest politicians elected in the 2013 polls.[1] He was reelected to office in the 2016 polls, while his father was likewise elected to Congress as Camarines Sur Representative. His grandfather, on the other hand, lost his Congressional bid during the 2016 elections.
