National police (PNP) chief Gen. Guillermo T. Eleazar said yesterday that he has nothing to do with the snowballing manifest of support urging him to continue his service to the public by running for senator in the next election.
Although Gen. Eleazar is very thankful to those behind the manifest, the PNP chief clarified that he does not know that a lot of Filipinos want him to run for senator in May 2022 national and local elections.
The manifest has now become viral on social media and that more and more voters are affixing their signature urging Eleazar to continue his service.
“Gen. Eleazar is a sure winner if he runs for senator,” said former long-time Bataan board member Lita Reyes.
In Mangahog, Bislig City, Surigao del Sur, former DBP employee Nestor Comedoy also appealed to Eleazar to hear the voice of the public for him to run for senator, believing he could play a major role in reforming and boosting the PNP organization.
The manifest calls on Eleazar to continue his service, which started from a low-ranking officer until appointed to the highest post of the PNP. He showed his string leadership, impeccable integrity and clean record as a highly respected leader, a records that will become his foundation to become a representative in the senate,” the manifest stated.
In Binugao district, Davao city, the big Sumile clan led by Jovit Sumile expressed the belief that Gen Eleazar, being an honest, highly-respected and incorruptible police official, can be a good leader who can be an asset of the Filipino people in the senate.
“We’ll support The Gen. Guillermo Eleazar for senator movement,” said Arch. Everly S. Guinto, president of the Alabang-based ESG Areva company.
Businessman Antonio Timbreza, a neighbor of Gen Eleazar in Putatan, Muntinlupa City, also said that their neighbors know the unblemished track record of the general and “he is a man of words and not of deeds.”
The manifest’ signatories believed that the ‘Gen Eleazar for senator movement’s intention’ is to bring a representative in the senate with a caliber like Senator Panfilo Lacson.
