Statement of Sen. Pia Cayetano on calls for GMA to extend AFP chief's term

"It would be more prudent for the President to extend the term of outgoing AFP chief General Victor Ibrado and just allow her successor to appoint his replacement after the elections. I understand that Gen. Ibrado is well-respected in the military because of his professionalism and clean record. He was never personally linked to anomalies nor accused of political partisanship. His leadership qualities will be crucial in ensuring the neutrality of the military leadership in the coming national polls."
