Poe Administration: No favouritism on appointment of new PNP chief

New Chief comes from PMA's ruling class - Chiz

Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero said the government of Grace Poe would not emulate President Benigno Aquino III who telegraphed already during the campaign for the presidency in 2010 his moist eye to then Chief Superintendent Alan Purisima as his new chief of the PNP.
Wala kaming gino-groom. Kung sino ang capable. Walang personality. Di kagaya ni Noynoy si Alan Purisima na sigurado (We don’t groom anybody. We look who is capable. We don’t focus on personality unlike President Aquino who had Alan Purisima in the pipeline already),” he stressed.
Escudero denied the report of this paper that in case his Gobyernong may Puso tandem win the palace his adopted classmate at PMA Class of 1987 will be the next police national chief.
Escudero is also an adopted member of the Philippine National Police Academy’s Class of 2000 while Poe is an adopted member of PMA Class of 1991.
“He is too young,” Escudero quipped when told that a PMA brass said that being an adopted member of PMA Class 1987 would not be a hindrance for the PNP’s top hierarchy because the appointee can be promoted from Senior Superintendent (equivalent of a full colonel in the military) to Chief Superintendent (one star general in military) after the Poe-Escudero Administration ascend into power in July 1 and then another rank for him every week to reach the four stars rank for the chief of the PNP.
“We have to follow the rule, PMA 1984 is the ruling class followed by PMA classes of 1985, 1986,” he said.

Escudero, supporters laud Poe, SC on favourable decision

At 3:00 pm today, I was in a convoy of vehicles following vice presidential aspirant Chiz Escudero, senatorial bet Migz Zubiri, and anti-smuggling Samang Industriya at Agrikultura’s president Rosendo So, a major supporter and campaign manager of Senator Grace Poe for the 2016 presidential race, when we learned that the Supreme Court's justices en banc decided with nine votes favouring the consolidated residency and citizenship issues of Poe and the six magistrates who dissented on the petitions of the Commission on Election to disqualify the lady presidential bet.
Excerpts of my posers and the answers of Escudero, Zubiri, and So after we disembarked in our cars in Mangaldan, Pangasinan:

Mortz Ortigoza (MCO): Sir, 9-6 daw, ano comment ninyo that Supreme Court sided with Grace Poe?
Vice Presidential bet Chiz Escudero: Binabati ko si Senator Grace at nagpapasalamat ako sa Korte Suprema

SINAG President Rosendo So (RS): Ah, alam naman natin na Filipina si Grace Poe kaya alam natin na talagang  proper kung talagang declared na natural born.

MCO: Game changer.....
MZ: Lalong uusad ang kanyang kandidatura (her candidacy will spike).
MCO: Mabiyaan na jud si (presidential rival Rod) Duterte kini? (She would exclipse closes rival Rod Duterte because of this Supreme Court’s thing?)
MZ: Ah, dili man pero tingnan, tan-awon nato, tan-awon nato kana! Will see. God willing, God willing. (Ah, no, but will see, will watch, will see that! Will see. God willing, God willing).
