DAVAO CITY - President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has tagged 35 local executives who are allegey part of illegal drug networks that he plans to eliminate nationwide.

The maverick president "named names" before Congressional leaders, and said he will ask these elected officials who are also drug offenders to vacate their posts immediately.

"Parang binibigyan nya ng leeway ngayon na confess. Siguro lighter sentence dahil nagconfess ka na pero he is not saying clemency or pardon," Quezon Representative Danilo Suarez told ABS-CBN News.
Suarez declined to name the 35 local leaders mentioned by Duterte, but hinted that these could be mayors or governors.

Duterte also told solons that he intends to clean the ranks of the Philippine National Police as some of its members have been lured into the illegal drug industry.

"He even mentioned that he might need the support of the Armed Forces in the cleansing method, eliminating those men in uniform who are involved in this drug issue," Suarez said.

The 71-year-old Davao mayor previously called on three drug-tainted PNP generals to step down from their posts before the Duterte administration formally takes office on June 30.
