President Duterte on Thursday night identified 43 local officials and three congressmen, most of them running in midterm elections in May, on his so-called narcolist. On the list of officials named by the President are 35 mayors, seven vice mayors, one provincial board member, and three members of the House of Representatives. The President named the politicians as he lamented the loss of policemen and soldiers in his bloody war on drugs. Among the local officials on the list identified by Duterte was dismissed Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, who has fled the country. Duterte also named Mayor Vicente Loot of Daanbantayan, Cebu province, who is a former police chief superintendent.
