As earlier reported by the ABS-CBN News, Lacson reacted over the remark of President Duterte that police officers should accept gifts if given out of generosity.
“Is this not graft Mr. President? Pray tell, who is ignorant?” Lacson said.
President Duterte responded with: “[Lacson is] penchant to just right away [make comments] in every issue… I think he’s running for President."
However, Lacson clarified that he is not even sure if he wants to become a President one day.
In a previous report by KAMI, Senator Lacson has filed the “designated survivor” bill seeking to allow the President appoint his successor. The "designated survivor" will take over the presidency should the Constitutional successors die or become incapacitated.
Born on June 1, 1948, Panfilo “Ping” Morena Lacson Sr. was a retired police officer. He served as the head of the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001. He has been a public servant for more than 40 years.
