PH need 'another Duterte' to continue 'Drug War' - Sen. Bato

Senator Ronald Dela Rosa believes that the next leader of the country should be of the same caliber as President Rodrigo Roa Duterte mainly because the others may not achieve the results that was achieved by Duterte.

The former Philippine National Police (PNP) head has all praise for the current administration’s progress and that there is a need to have all of these sustained by the next leader of the country.

Dela Rosa said in a radio interview that the government is "running out of time" and that "maybe we need another Duterte to continue the work."

The recent survey results of the lobbying and political campaigns management firm PUBLiCUS last December showed 35% of respondents picked Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio in a list of 21 potential candidates for president.

"If you speak of possibilities, then it’s limitless. Everything’s possible," presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said then, when asked about the possibility of Duterte running for vice president alongside his daughter, said:

"We have to do concrete actions right now otherwise we are going to the dogs. Ang ating bansa magiging narco state tayo. Baka mamaya ang PNP na ang aatras sa armadong drug lords gaya sa Mexico," Dela Rosa said. 
"Huwag natin hintayin na ganun. Dahil malapit na talaga tayo kung di naging presidente si Pangulong Duterte."
(Our country might become a narco state. The PNP might retreat from a fight with heavily-armed drug lords like what is happening in Mexico. We should not wait for such an eventuality. We might have been a narco state if President Duterte was not elected.)
