'Ano ba talaga ang trabaho': Bato to get Koko, JV's help for his new job at Senate
(Philstar.com) - May 14, 2019 - 8:38pm

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines' former top cop Bato dela Rosa plans to seek advice and attend lawmaking seminars if he wins a seat in the Senate.

In an interview with CNN Philippines, Dela Rosa said he would call Sens. Koko Pimentel and JV Ejercito to ask about his new position.

"Magtatawag-tawag ako kina Koko Pimentel, JV Ejercito kung ano ba talaga ang trabaho ng senador, what do I need to prepare," Dela Rosa said during the interview.

Apart from consulting other senators, Dela Rosa also seeks to attend training and seminars on making laws.

"Mayro'n bang mga seminar diyan? Training para gumawa ng batas? Kung mayro'n, I will take that opportunity," Dela Rosa said.

But if the seminars were to be held at the University of the Philippines, the former police chief doesn't plan to attend.

"Pag UP, hindi na 'ko pupunta. Alanganin ako diyan," he said.

UP and its students have been known critics of the current administration.

As of 7:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Dela Rosa sits at fifth place in the Senate race with 18,281,296 votes. — Luisa Morales
