– the administration’s anti-drug war
– the PNP Internal Affairs Service
– Charter change

Quotes from the interview…Β Β 

On the PNP IAS:
“Dapat civilian talaga. I don’t know ano nangyari during the time of Gen. Purisima bakit 2-star general nag-head ng IAS. At dapat bigyan full complement in terms of staffing, equipment, logistics, lahat.”

On addressing the issue of oligarchy via Charter change:
“Dapat talaga para naman di mapagsamantalahan ng iilan, kasi ganoon na lang cycle, papalit-palit. But then if you notice, whenever there’s a change of administration, lagi na lang nakita natin the same personalities na nag-e-exert ng influence. Kung kaya gawin ni PRRD yan, I think that would be as big an accomplishment sa ginagawa niya sa fight against illegal drugs kung maisasakatuparan
yan.”
“That’s another challenge. Impeachment ni (former Chief Justice) Corona wala na kaming nagawang ibang legislation halos. What more a charter amendment na mag-immerse kami roon, yan gagawin namin, baka wala na kaming maipasang batas.”
