This, as he reminded the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) that there should be no politics involved in the enforcement of the law during a news conference in Davao City on Monday afternoon (May 16, 2016).

The tough-talking Davao City mayor stressed that the PNP must have integrity and must be passionate in their fight against illegal drugs.

“If you are lukewarm about drugs, you better not apply,” said Duterte to those planning to submit an application to the PNP.

With Duterte currently drafting the list of people who will be assisting him as he assumes position in Malacañang on June 30, he reminded those interested that he will not accept applications without recommendations.

Meanwhile, Duterte is also considering PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group chief-of-staff Rene Aspera and C/Supt. Ronald Dela Rosa to become PNP Chief.

“I’m looking at Dela Rosa and Aspera as chief of PNP. They have sterling performances in the city of Davao,” he explained. “They are honest, they are not corrupt, and they follow orders.”

Known as the candidate who is strongly against illegal drug trade and drug use, Duterte previously said that he will be asking the help of the military in enforcing his strict laws. He also plans to urge the congress to restore death penalty by hanging for crimes such as robbery with rape, homicide, and use of illegal drugs.

    Panahon na ng totoong matatapang. Yun iba kc yata jan sa nk-uniporme e puro porma lang. Pagdating sa barilan e naglalaro ng taguan pero kwidaw ka sa angas kapag wlang klaban. Sana totoo na to. Hindi sana puro pelikula kundi crackdown tlga. Sawang-sawa n ko sa dami ng drug pushers at drug dependents sa paligid lalo na sa Tramo, Pasay City boundary ng Makati at Manila.
