Who is Rodrigo Duterte?

He was a latecomer in the presidential race but has surged as frontrunner in the latest surveys.

PDP-Laban standard bearer Rodrigo Duterte is now the target of criticism because of his style of governance, language, and personal affairs.

Duterte has given himself a deadline to end crime and corruption in the country, if elected president:

"Sinasabi ko sa inyo, three to six months, we get rid of crime, and corruption. Subukan niyo ako. I am willing to put at stake my honor, my life and the office itself."
