Gobernador o senador? Duterte reveals Bato in talks with Sara about political plans
Outgoing Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa is having talks with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte regarding his political plans, President Rodrigo Duterte revealed Tuesday (April 17).
In a speech at the awarding of the Medal of Valor to the kin of the 44 slain Special Action Force troopers in Malacañang, Duterte teased Dela Rosa about the position he wants to run for in 2019.
“Ano ba ang gusto mo governor o senador?” the President asked Dela Rosa.
“Nag-uusap pa sila ni Inday. Inday has… Sabi ko you just talk to Inday then maybe if we have time we can talk together,” he added.
In 2017, Dela Rosa said he was open to running for senator. However, earlier this year, Duterte revealed that the PNP chief has his eyes set on becoming a governor.
Sara is the founder of Hugpong ng Pagbabago, a regional political party that is expected to be a force to reckon with in the Davao region in the 2019 polls.
