Philippines election: Maverick Rodrigo Duterte wins presidency


Maverick anti-crime candidate Rodrigo Du-ter-tey has won the Philippine presidential elections, following the withdrawal of his opponents.
Although the official result has not yet been declared, main rival Mar Roxas admitted defeat after polls gave Mr Du-ter-tey an unassailable lead.
Mr Du-ter-tey said he accepted the mandate with “extreme humility”.
The 71-year-old stirred controversy during campaigning with his incendiary comments.
