Po­lice chief aims for top job

The Citizen (KZN) - - WORLD - Manila

– The Philip­pines’ top po­lice chief, who over­saw a bloody war on drugs that has killed thou­sands, hinted yes­ter­day at a pos­si­ble run for the pres­i­dency.

Ron­ald dela Rosa, a celebrity-like general nick­named “Bato” (Rock), has said he was open to run­ning for the Se­nate. But in a speech at po­lice head­quar­ters, he hinted at higher politi­cal goals. “Wait for Bato to be­come president and I will quadru­ple your salaries,” he said.
