The incoming chief of the Philippine National Police, Chief Supt. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, vowed to resign if he fails to suppress drugs and crime in the country within six months and also a promise also made by his boss, President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.


In an interview over DZMM today, Bato said that “I am ready to face the consequences after six months kapag hindi ko nagawa ang (dapat kong) gawin (if I am not able to  do what I am supposed to do),”.


Bato, who is as tough-talking as Duterte, said his resignation will be irrevocable and he added “I’ve said before that I’ll surrender (to my superior if I fail): ‘Please replace me sir. I failed you and the people.’".

He said he will not be like other erring PNP officials to cling on to their position for power and money.

“Hindi naman ako (kagaya) ng mga opisyal dyan na kapit-tuko sa mga pwesto nila. May delicadeza naman ako,” Bato said.

Asked where he would base the success of his anti-drug and -criminality drive, Dela Rosa said this would be proven mainly through crime statistics and through the pulse of the people and the media.


“Kung kita niyo na failure ako (If you think that I am a failure), then I will step down,” he said.


The outgoing Davao City Mayor then tapped Dela Rosa, also a former Davao City Police official, to take over the 160,000-strong police force.


Since the early days of the election campaign, Duterte had waged war against illegal drugs and criminality. This made him popular among the electorate, winning the presidential race by a landslide with more than P16 million votes.
