A provincial mayor in the Philippines who led a tough-talking campaign has claimed victory in the presidential elections. Rodrigo Duterte says he accepts the mandate with extreme humility. Unofficial results suggest he has an unassailable lead. Jonathan Head is in Manila.
This is somebody who has quite openly tried to outrage people with his comments and suggested really quite radical policies from incredibly tough approaches to crime, to, for example, advocating a federal system for the Philippines. He's still a very unknown quantity in many ways, Rodrigo Duterte. What he's done in Davao and clearing crimes there has certainly won him huge admirers across the country.
