MalacaƱang seems not liking the idea of giving Vice President Leni Robredo the power to appoint the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, according to reports.

In an article by Politiko, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that having Robredo get to choose the next PNP General is a “crazy” idea.

“Kalokohan yun… Masyado silang maraming hinihingi. Pinagbigyan na nga,” Panelo said

President Rodrigo Duterte signed Robredo’s appointment as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) last October 31

It stated that Robredo will be of service as anti-drug czar until June 30, 2022.

“The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Philippine National Police, and Dangerous Drugs Board and all other law enforcement agencies are hereby directed to extend their full assistance and cooperation to the Vice President to ensure the success of the Government’s efforts in the war against illegal drugs,” the memorandum said

Panelo urges the Vice President to grab the opportunity to become part of the Cabinet members.

“Tanggapin na niya iyan kasi, pagkakataon na nya. Kung ako sa kanya, welcome naman sya sa Cabinet, tanggapin na niya,” Panelo said.
