DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will still have a chance to prove that he can eradicate crime in six months even if he fails to win the presidency.
Sen. Grace Poe said that she is willing to appoint Duterte as crime czar if she wins in May.
Poe in an interview during a mini rally at Baseco compound in Manila said Duterte can make good his promise to put an end to criminality in six months under her administration but she will have to replace him if he fails to do it.
This was Poe’s counter offer to Duterte, who earlier said that he will name Poe as secretary of either the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) or the Department of Tourism (DOT).
Poe thanked Duterte for his offer.
“He has been saying that he will voluntarily quit if he can’t do it in six months, so for me that will be a challenge to him,” she said. Jefferson Antiporda
