Former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa shared his experience during the campaign period. KAMI learned that Dela Rosa said that he had thoughts of withdrawing from his Senate bid.
In a report by Inquirer, Dela Rosa shared during the Philippine Military Alumni (PMA) homecoming how hard it was to campaign.
“Wala na akong boses, mahirap magkampanya pala. Kaya nga eh, kung pwede lang sanang mag-withdraw eh, withdraw na ako pero wala na, nasimulan na, kailangang tuloy na tuloy na,” Dela Rosa said.
However, Dela Rosa said that he will not back out despite having thoughts of withdrawing from the race.
“Ang sabi ko lang, minsan mag-isip ka mag-withdraw, pagod na pagod ka, pero never, no retreat no surrender, fight ‘yan fight,” he said.
In a previous report by KAMI, Bato shared that even though he lacks wealth and political experience, he could still offer his “clean heart” to the Filipinos.
“I come with a clean heart. Malinis ang puso ko. Kahit na buksan niyo pa ito,” Dela Rosa said.
Born on January 21, 1962, Ronald Marapon dela Rosa used to be the Director General of the Bureau of Corrections. He was the first chief of police under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte who motivated him to run as a senator.
