Former Senator JV Ejercito did not expect Police Major General Debold Sinas to get the much coveted top police post.
Ejercito, in a post on Twitter, admitted that President Duterte’s appointment of Sinas as Philippine National Police chief came as a surprise.
Sinas, who faces charges over alleged quarantine violation for his birthday celebration a few months ago, will replace PNP Chief Gen. Camilo Cascolan who will retire from the service on Tuesday.
“PGen. Debold Sinas is new PNP Chief. Its a surprise choice,” he tweeted Monday.
The former senator also commented about the impact of the appointment of Sinas to other contenders.
“Bigatin! Other contenders have been deboned!” Ejercito said.
