Gustong makalamang! Roderick Alcala blames Danny Suarez for inclusion in narco list

Mar 16, 2019 @ 9:28

Lucena City mayor Roderick Alcala believes House Minority Leader Danilo Suarez had a hand in his inclusion in President Rodrigo Duterte’s list of politikos allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade.

Alcala on Friday said his inclusion in the so-called “narco list” was “politically motivated.” He said Suarez had threatened him that he would release documents against him unless he stops a certain broadcaster from making controversial comments.

“Alam ko na on my part na sila ang behind dito, ginagawan nila ng paraan para tayo ay ma-link dito. Isang malakas na puwersa dito sa lalawigan at ito ang ginagawa nila,” the mayor said.

Suarez is running for governor against one of Alcala’s uncles while the House leader’s son, incumbent provincial governor Jay Jay Suarez, is up against another Alcala for a congressional seat.

Alcala, a PDP-Laban stalwart who is running for re-election, said his inclusion in the narco list was meant to “paralyze” the 160,000 votes coming from Lucena.
