Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa on Thursday admitted that he dreamed to become a senator one day, but clarified that he’s still unsure if he’s going to run in the next senatorial election.
In a radio interview, he expressed his desire to continue serving the country as a legislator.
“Hindi po ako plastic na tao, ako ay gusto maging senador din ako pero hindi ko sinabi agad directly na ako ay tatakbo. Ang akin lang makatulong ako sa bayan sa pamamaraan ng pagiging senador e why not,” He said.
“Klaruhin ko wala akong plano, maganda maging senador pero wala akong plano dahil alam mo na,” he added.
He also said that he’s not vocal in running for the next election because some people might destroy his image in public.
Bato also said that he don’t have any money for the campaign.
“Wala akong pera panggastos… Kapag sinabi kong open ako, open for giba na naman ako. Gigibain na naman ako ng mga detractors na iyan lalo na ‘yung mga gustong tumakbong senador. Hahanap ng paraan iyan, gigibain ako,” he said.
The PNP chief also said that he wanted to return to his hometown when he retires next year.
“Uuwi doon sa amin sa Bato, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur at mamimingwit ng isda sa tabing dagat,
He also said that President Duterte is the one who will decide if he’s going to be appointed to other positions in the government.
