MANILA, Philippines—Philippine National Police Director General Jesus Verzosa will not back the newly designated military chief, Lt. Gen. Delfin Bangit, should he attempt to install President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as holdover president in the event of a failure of the May 10 election.
“According to the Constitution, we must have a new president after June 30,” Verzosa told the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Tuesday.
The PNP chief also vowed to thwart unlawful attempts to undermine the electoral process in May and the takeover of any government institution, especially the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
