The Philippine National Police’s return to the war on drugs can only mean more publicity for top cop Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa and Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, according to Politiko’s online survey.

Results of the poll showed 52 percent of Politiko’s fans expect Dela Rosa and Roque to gain media mileage once the PNP is at the helm of the government’s anti-drug offensive.

Close to 4 out of 10 or 36 percent of netizens think the incidence of extrajudicial killings will worsen, while the remaining 11 percent believe the PNP will exercise moderation in going after drug suspects.

Politiko’s survey was conducted from to November 26 to December 1 with 654 fans as respondents.

President Rodrigo Duterte has hinted that the PNP will lead the war on drugs again, after nearly a month of allowing the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to solely run after drug suspects.
