As of the moment, according to an article from PhilStar, the officials that are in the shortlist of the candidates for the next PNP chief are the following:

With regard to what the President meant when he said that he wanted a better deal, Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo explained that he wanted an honest cop.
He emphasized that the President was looking for someone who wasn’t facing any charges. The Presidential spokesperson was then pressed as to why Duterte hasn’t chosen a successor yet.
With this, Panelo stated that maybe the President still wasn’t contested. He added that the President didn’t explain and we’d just have to wait for him.
Afterward, he said that if a successor is still not chosen, then the President would have to take over temporarily as PNP’s head.
