President Rodrigo Duterte has already chosen who will be the next head of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Malacañang announced Monday.

“I know he has made the decision but I’m not at liberty to announce anything unless I have the appointment paper,” Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said in a press briefing.

PNP chief Police General Debold Sinas, who became controversial because of his highly criticized birthday celebration last year, is set to retire on May 8.

The upcoming PNP head will be the 25th chief under the Duterte administration.
