PNP Chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde himself has earlier named three senior police officials as his possible successors.

“I think we have the same list naman as Gen. Bato Dela Rosa. Sila naman ang medyo senior at sila ang next in line (They are seniors and next in line),” Albayalde, who will retire in November, earlier said.

He was referring to National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar; Deputy Director Gen. Archie Francisco Gamboa, PNP operations chief; and Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan, PNP Directorial Staff chief. /je
