Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) Chairman and Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte was amazed by senatorial candidate Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa’s performance during the CNN Philippines debate.
During an ambush interview after their campaign rally in Mambajao, Camiguin, Inday Sara said that Bato handled and outshined the six members of Otso Diretso who tried to debate with the latter about different important issues in the country.
He said that Bato has the characteristics of being a leader of the country in the future, citing that he raised his ideas on social issues very well.
“We are happy on General Bato’s performance during the debate and what I said to him a while ago, because of his performance on the debate, he could be the next president of the country,” Duterte said.
Bato is not yet giving a response to Inday Sara’s statement.
Dela Rosa who’s a close ally of President Rodrigo Duterte catches the attention of the netizens after he became passionate several times while facing the opposition members who criticized the current administration’s policies and his performance as the head of Philippine National Police (PNP).
Several politicians like Sen. Panfilo Lacson and Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian was also expressed their surprise on how Bato faced the six members of Otso Diretso who almost ganged him during the debate.
