Palace : Let's not underestimate 'Bato' dela Rosa

Palace : Let's not underestimate 'Bato' dela Rosa

Do  not judge a book by its cover.

That seems to be the message Malacanang wants to convey to the public as regards to the capacity of former Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief and Bureau of Corrections( BuCor) Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa in becoming a senator.

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo, defended dela Rosa following the criticism hurled at him for his honest admission, in an interview, that he would need to attend seminars on how to craft laws once he starts.

Panelo said dela Rosa should not be criticized for admitting his handicap as a first-time senator, pointing out that not all lawmakers had to be lawyers.
Parang pinalalabas nila dapat abogado lang ang nandiyan kasi legislation iyan (It’s as if people are saying that only lawyers should be there because being a senator involves legislation),” said Panelo.
Panelo said dela Rosa is a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) “Sinagtala” Class of 1986 and graduates from there are known for their “intellect.”

Huwag nating maliitin, nakakalimutan ng mga kumukwestyon sa kapasidad ni General Bato na PMA graduate ito: Hindi ba ang PMA graduates eh known for their intellect” Panelo said.
Atty. Panelo likens dela Rosa to another former PNP chief and PMA graduate, Panfilo “Ping” Lacson himself was not knowledgeable about lawmaking as a rookie senator but eventually improved.

Nakakalimutan ng mga nagko-question kay General Bato na si Ping Lacson, PMA graduate at PNP Chief din wala ring alam sa legislation noong siya ay pumasok (Those who are questiniong General Bato are forgetting that Ping Lacson, PMA graduate and PNP chief, also had no knowledge about legislation when he came in),” Panelo said.
Di ba naging magaling na legislator (Didn’t he become a good legislator)?” he added.
