Senator Panfilo Lacson advised Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa to focus on his work, instead of alleged preparation for possible political plans in 2019.
The lawmaker made the statement amid the information that the PNP chief might run for senator in the next elections.
Lacson said Dela Rosa should set aside the temptation in politics in order not to be distracted in executing his obligation in the PNP.
The senator and former PNP chief, reminded Dela Rosa that it is too early for the current chief to entertain political offers for the 2019 elections.
It can be recalled that Dela Rosa has been in hot water for the past week due to the murder of a South Korean businessman involving some police.
It is allegedly said that the victim was killed inside Camp Crame in Quezon City.
